Final score Boston 4 – Montreal 2
Well we witnessed the first loss of the 2011 post-season, too bad it was in front of a packed energetic crowd of 21,000 plus, also a chance for the Habs to go 3-0 on the Bruins.
The Bruins very well took a page out of the Habs road efforts in the first two games by scoring first and then sitting back playing defensive hockey. First goal is probably the most important thing to accomplish in a playoff game, if you score the first goal you can dictate the play to your opponents. The Habs just had a little too much confidence going in and likely the nerves got the better of them for most of the first period.
