Montreal-Boston: Habs Rally To Down Bruins, 4-1

Yesterday was the first NHL hockey game for most fans since the end of the Olympics. After two weeks of some of the best hockey ever played anywhere, ever, I had to admit that it was a little difficult to get into last night's game.

This is no fault of the players on the ice, mind you, as they are doing what they have always been doing and performing to the best of their capacity. It's just that I found myself finding the game to be slow with a lot of missed assignments and even more missed passes.

What happened to the beautiful tape to tape plays from the Olympics? The electric body checks and the outstanding saves?

Well, except for the latter, there is no question that a regular season NHL game is a step down from the Olympics. But we all knew that, right?

The Bruins scored first on a goal mouth scramble as Marco Strum, fresh off of an Olympic appearance with Team Germany, poked the rebound off of a Chara shot past Price.

Price should likely have stopped the first shot and, judging from the rain storm of negativity that poured down on him in the Twitterverse after the goal, it is clear that people are not ready to give him a chance.
