MONTREAL — With the NHL lockout grinding through its fourth month, Montreal Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges looked to Twitter for a hockey game.

The 28-year-old Gorges extended an open invitation to his followers on the social network to join him at a Montreal rink during the Boxing Day holiday.

Fans responded in droves. Dozens of players, ranging widely in age and skill level, packed into a rink in the city’s Verdun neighborhood for a chance to skate alongside an NHL player.
