the bruins just unable to put it in the net. a tough loss for fans, but montreal was unstopable out on the ice. >> the b's getting one goal past mike condon. sports director joe is live, and, joe, this wasn't the bruins day. >> it wasn't, but it was a great day for the fans here with great conditions for hockey. really a lot of energy. the problem is montreal came out real fast on them. we're joined right now by 14 nhl veteran, shawn mcgeckeren. he even played for the bruins for a while. you've seen a lot of hockey in your day. he's seen it at every level. when a team comes up with that much energy and gets you a goal 114 into the game. it made their inexperienced goal tender. >> i have they have big speed up front and a lot of kill and i think that early goal hurts the bruins. i think they were hoping to play
and they never got into that. they wanted to create offense off of turnovers, but montreal didn't give them that opportunity. they used their speed and skill down low to create chances, and boston was on their heels most of the game. >> you could see the frustration with tuukka rask. the bruins were out shot 14-3 in the first period. tuukka made some great saves along the way. there was a lot of zone time. they got some good point shops. they knocked tuukka other. gallagher was in front of the net. he made a big difference for them. >> on the other end of the ice you had mike condon, born in needham. went to belmont hill. undrafted. son of state police sergeant ted condon. and here he is out here on the ice in a 5-win over the boston bruins today. he was up to the challenge. he had a very career at belmont
do what he's done so far is very impressive and to come to gillette stadium and beat the bruins and put up the numbers he did today, only one goal out, his family is very proud i'm sure, but he's having a heck of a year. >> from us stating overall for this bruins team. julien has to be frustrated. he was tinkering with the lines, but he's running out of players out there. this is claude julien after the game. >> claude, what were the issues with trying to get the bottom six rhythm, it seems like it was a challenge in the first period. >> it was. we had a tough night. it's the unfortunate part is that i think we played one of our probably worst game at the worst time. i think it's just -- it seemed like where it was one of those nights where we couldn't get anything going first period. they were all over us. and we just -- it didn't matter
couldn't get it going and we didn't obviously deserve to win and we got to kind of push this aside and, it's unfortunately that it was on a big stage like this and you would like to have your team give a better performance, but we didn't. >> claude, considering what was at stake here, plus the build up to all of it, could you finger on why you got off to such a rough start? >> not really. and that's what happens sometimes. we have nights where things just don't go your way and we just couldn't seem to find the rhythm, we couldn't seem to find our game and we know we have challenges, but we didn't want to use that as an excuse, and we shouldn't. but they came through really hard, they came out well. they seemed to be on their toes and they had us on our heels early and we waited from there.
our team was when we scored that goal. for about five minutes we seemed to have some life but then it dissipated again. >> anyone else? >> claude, did they give you an explanation on that no goal in the second period at all? >> it probably was a quick whistle. i think the puck was loose underneath his skate. there was no explanation given to me. i'm going by what he seemed to indicate, that the whistle had blown before the puck went in. >> anyone else? >> claude, how would you describe the conditions as far as the ice and everything and the boards and whatnot? >> i don't know, steve. i think you'll probably have to ask the players that, because again i didn't really talk about that, because to me it has no impact on our game when you look at both teams playing on the same ice. i think that was my concern more than it was trying to get our team
you'll have to ask them. >> claude, you're facing a pretty tough stretch coming up with the road trip. how do you want your team to put this one aside and reload? >> well, you don't have a choice. i always say the same thing. you don't have a choice. we have to put these aside and things airport going to get any easier. right now i don't know if we anticipate having anybody back for the next game yet or not, so we have to move with what we have, and when you have that lineup, you just have to tell yourself you need to be better and we have to be better as a group, and we're challenged right now, but that's where team comes into play, and you have to play for each other probably a little bit harder and probably a little bit more determined. >> claude julien's had a chance to jump into first place instead they remain in third place. we'll have much more post game coverage coming up over the next
reporting live at gillette stadium, adam, liz, back to you. >> mike condon stealing the spotlight at today's winter classic. the massachusetts native showing off his skills in the stadium. he grew up watching the patriots. he stopped almost every puck that came at him. >> 7's tim caputo continues his coverage down at gillette and what a game for tim condon. >> a heck of performance and experience for the local kid who happened to be playing for the bad guys against the boston bruins this afternoon and all 25 saves for this 25-year-old, he he did let up one goal but got the big win which was on what many could say is his home ice. mike condon grew up in holistan. he's been to gillette stadium many times. many times as a fan. today the 25-year-old was center
an extra treat for the massachusetts native tom brady even signed his goalie helmet, writing, mike, go patriots, your pal, tom brady. pat's head coach bill belichick also signed his helmet. he paid tribute to his favorite football team by having sketches of bill belichick and brady painted on the back of his emanuel and the four lombardis in between. even the motto, do your job on the back. after the game condon jokily said the signature helped them win the game. >> probably a little special. i had a lot of friends and family here tonight. yeah, bruins hats, gillette stadium, winter classic, new year's day. i don't think you could discriminate it any better. >> i was trying to keep my head osteites. but when the buzzer rang, i took a minute and took as many mental photos as he could and remember this feeling. it's certainly a special one. >> special experience that almost didn't happen too. he is ultimately the backup goalie
that is until their goalie carrie price got reinjured this season and injured again in november which gave him the opportunity to come back home and ultimately steal the stage from the hometown team. that's the latest live from foxbourough, tim caputo, 7news. >> another homecoming for a canadiens centers. brian anyone. anyone grew up a fan. bran gone gunnoe spoke with his fame. family live with more on this story. mike condon may have stole the show, but he wasn't the only massachusetts native out here at the west africa. brian anyone, like you said he's a 27-year-old center for the montreal canadiens. he grew up in leitchfield. he had an assist to paul byron for montreal. second goal. that was in the second period. again, a new englander grew up in lynnfield, he played high school

classic earlier today. let's get back out live to our sports director joe am. he kept the bruins in the game. in that first period. he was visibly frustrated as he walked off the ice and into the dressing room and this is tuukka just a few moments ago. >> when it's 1-0 you're expecting to get the next goal and keep the game tight, but when they make it 3-0 it makes it even more difficult overcome that. but i mean, overall we definitely didn't deserve the win. >> tuukka when you said it's two of the worst games you've played, what does that say to you? >> i don't know. i think we're just -- mentally we're not there, i guess, and we weren't executing the game like we wanted to. a couple things go wrong like that
looked like. you have to create them. we didn't do that. >> could you put your finger as to why you feel this team wasn't mentally better today? >> i don't know. tough to say. but when things go wrong you have to stick with the game plan and play your player system and we didn't do that. so then it just snow balls. >> did their first three goals right in front of the net, how much harder does that make your job when guys aren't trying to get the puck out? >> they were trying out there. sometimes you just don't have it and today we got scored on a couple times, and that definitely hurt us. >> was there any adjustment for you early with the rink, the atmosphere. >> no, no.
it was -- felt like a normal game. a little breezy sometimes, but it felt like a normal game. >> it's going to be tough too, with 60,000 plus, everything was fun about it except -- >> yeah, yeah. great event. yeah. great event. it takes the fun out of it obviously, but too bad we couldn't give the fans a little bit more to cheer for. >> you can understand tuukka's frustration looking up that score board and seeing five canadiens goals on the board today. he's been playing so well and we'll up. reporting live from gillette you. following some other news. when we come back, drone drama. for the second time in a week over at boston's logan airport. >> then an attack in israel. authorities trying to see if there are connections to isis.
