BOSTON (CBS) – 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Andy Gresh and Scott Zolak have enough thoughts following the Bruins double overtime Game 1 loss to the Canadiens to fit the entire website, but we’re breaking it down for your nicely in this one post.

RASK

The guys talked about the goalie play to kick things off. Both Gresh and Zo agreed that that Tuukka Rask didn’t have his best performance Thursday night.

“Tuukka wasn’t perfect last night,” said Zo. Rask let up some uncharacteristically cheap goals, and in a game where Carey Price made 48 saves, Tuukka needs to play better.

YOUNG DEFENSEMAN

The Bruins young defenseman continue to impress, even with the stakes at the highest they’ve been. Torey Krug and Dougie Hamilton have shown great composure all season long and they do not seem flustered playing in the playoffs against Montreal.

Krug and Hamilton both registered a point with a goal and assist, respectively, and skated well all game. The Bruins can skate with Montreal — no doubt about it. All the talk leading up to the game about how Montreal kills teams with their speed? That was not a factor last night.

BARTKOWSKI

Matt Bartkowski had a rough game Thursday night and took the brute of the blame.

“Bartkowski is going to get hammered today and rightfully so,” said Gresh. “He was bad in key situations and he caused the two power plays that lead to two goals by Subban.”

One of those goals would be the game winner and according to Gresh that penalty was easily avoidable. “I thought Bartkowski put himself in position to get that penalty called on him.”

Zo added, “He’s got to be held accountable.”

NBC

Both Gresh and Zo thought the NBC broadcast duo of Kenny Albert and Pierre McGuire was shaky.

“Kenny Albert talked so much that Pierre McGuire could hardly get a word in edge wise and yet I still felt like they needed a third person,” said Gresh. “Albert is definitely more of a radio guy.”

Fans always feel cheated when Doc Emrick isn’t calling their game, who happens to bring a lot more to the table with his emotion. Gresh would have rather seen Eddie Olczyk in the booth than Albert, while Zo said, “PUT JACK [Edwards] IN!”

For the full analysis involving P.K. Subban, Carey Price and the Bruins missed scoring opportunities, you’ll have to listen below:
