Shots on Goal: Bruins take out Senators, 5-1

Powered by two Riley Nash goals, the Boston Bruins easily defeated the Ottawa Senators, 5-1 Wednesday night at the TD Garden.

Their first matchup this season convincingly went the B’s way with the third line (Riley Nash, Danton Heinen, David Backes) all making big contributions.

The Colorado Avalanche have had the Bruins number on Garden ice since Mach 30, 1998, 11-0-1, and that trend continued in Monday afternoon’s matinee.
