Price, Subban banned from “triple-low-five” celebration

Feb 1, 2013, 2:57 PM EST

Remember that hand-slapping routine Montreal defenseman PK Subban and goalie Carey Price used to do after wins?

Yeah, that’s not going to happen anymore.

According to Bill Beacon of the Canadian Press, the “triple-low-five” is out for this season:

Carey Price said the post-victory triple-low-five celebrations he used to do with Subban have been banned. Only team celebrations are now tolerated.

The Canadiens this season skate to centre ice after wins and raise their sticks to the fans.

“It’s a team concept,” said Therrien of the team rule. “You have to respect the game, the other team and the fans.

“The way we decided to celebrate this year is to salute the fans because they deserve it.”

So no individualistic cellies in Montreal this season. C’est dommage. (Also, I got over my concern with using “celly” and just, you know, went for it. YOLO.)

In related news, there’s still no word if Subban will make his season debut on Saturday when the Canadiens take on Buffalo at the Bell Centre.

Subban skated on the third defence pair with Francis Bouillon at Friday’s practice — that was also the pairing for the second power-play unit.
