BOSTON (CBS) – After 20 goals in four straight wins heading into Thursday night’s game, the Bruins appeared to be playing their best hockey of the season as the Olympic break neared.

Then it all came crashing down against the Canadiens at the Garden.

Goalie Tuukka Rask was pulled midway through the second period after allowing three early goals, making it the fourth time this season he’s been yanked.

Boos rained down on the Bruins at various points throughout the game – a lot of them directed at hated Habs defenseman P.K. Subban – but a majority of fans were disappointed in the effort displayed by their hometown team and let them hear it.

Gresh & Zo: Canadiens Have Bruins Number

Torey Krug and his teammates took notice of their displeasure and talked about it Friday afternoon on Gresh & Zolak.

“Well it’s tough. You want to put the best product you can on the ice. When your fans have high expectations of you and you don’t perform then they’re going to be upset. We know they expect a lot out of us, and we expect a lot out of ourselves. We just got to make sure we play better and we won’t have that problem.”

Krug also talked about what it was like heading into the intermission down 4-1.

“It’s tough. You start to play well in the first period, then they get one and they have a lead. Then we know it’s a close game coming into the second period and go out there and lay an egg. They score a couple goals and they’ve got all the momentum going their way. It’s something we wish we could take back. We all wish we could have done a little bit more. Unfortunately we can’t. It’s all in the past and it’s onto the next game.”
