After watching Lucic's goal a few times, while O'Byrne getting burned by Kessel is the most obvious mistake, I think the most costly one of the entire play is Kovy's ridiculously bad positioning in the defensive zone. Had he played Lucic instead of taking a stroll through the slot the would not have been a goal. He needs to learn how to backcheck. For a guy being used to frequently on the PK you'd think such a simple thing as backchecking could be done.
Kovalev was just as responsible as O'Byrne for that goal.

Certainly this is no particular set back for the Canadiens, which means it really isn't a major victory for the Bruins either. It was just one more installment of the old rivalry.
That's pretty well said. That's how I feel about the game.
