Canadiens’ Subban ‘doesn’t remember’ much about Sunday

P.K. Subban was often involved in one way or another in Sunday’s fight-filled game between the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators.

So involved was Subban that he apparently forgot all about it the next day.

“I don’t remember, to be honest with you,” Subban, the Canadiens defenseman, told the Ottawa Sun. “There were so many different things that happened in (Sunday’s) game. There were so many different distractions. For us, we just want to look forward.”

The Canadiens, as a team, were frustrated throughout Sunday’s Game 3, which they lost 6-1 and fell behind in the best-of-seven series two-games-to-one.

Emotions boiled over in a chaotic third period. The two teams combined for one line brawl and a total of 236 penalty minutes.

For his part, Subban had a minus-one rating and 25 penalty minutes. He was ejected for instigating a fight with Senators forward Kyle Turris.

“It was one of those things. I don’t want to be in the box for that long but I was happy seeing our guys stand up for each other,” Subban told the Montreal Gazette.

“We’re a team that a lot of people don’t expect to see fight or get involved physically, but it’s about a character.

“For people who say there’s dissension or issues in our room…to see a guy like Brendan Gallagher go out and fight a guy and not even think twice about it, that says a lot about our team.”

      Man, you have to have the all-time most appropriate username of anyone on this board.

        lmao guess we can assume a montreal,ottawa or boston fan has arrived

    • mgp1219 - May 7, 2013 at 12:18 PM

      Is that what you call it? You really believe Subban is an assclown just to get a reaction from fans from other cities? If so, then let him keep doing it and see how far the canadiens go in the playoffs. He should be concentrating on winning the games, don’t you think?

    not a bad play by subban here. deflect the attention from the rest of your whining team to someone who apparently has the same mental capacity as a carrot.

    • dumbassgreg - May 7, 2013 at 1:21 AM

      you must not know some evendence carrots are brain food lmao

      • dumbassgreg - May 7, 2013 at 1:25 AM

        d-oh dumbass spelled evidence wrong. yes some of us can laugh at ourselves

    Does he remember the part where he continually tried to punch and maul a guy while he was on straddling him on the ice with the official right inbetween them? This guys a douche.

  5. 19to77 - May 7, 2013 at 1:14 AM

    Let me remind you, P.K. – you had a tantrum with your teammate in the middle of the period instead of saving it for the locker room, attacked Kyle Turris when he was down, got thrown from the game for it, and generally sucked all night – as did your entire team. Enjoy the 3-1 deficit you’ll be handed tomorrow night.

    Someone has a tacit understanding of grammar, punctuation, and spelling, which if I’m not mistaken are the three most important components of written communication.

    • mgp1219 - May 7, 2013 at 12:22 PM

      Rumor – you missed a comma after the words “which” and “mistaken”. Just sayin’.

    Typical subban. No respect for this guy

    Hope he gets hit hard enough to jog his memory. Ten cent brain, with the maturity of a 2 year old.

    The irony of hearing this guy talk about character! Unreal. Apparently these guys DO have issues in the locker room and there is some dissension based on his comments. It will be interesting to read about these things when the Habs lose to Ottawa. Ottawa vs. Pitt will be a hell of series….

    • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 7, 2013 at 6:44 AM

      How can you be so sure the Sens will win the series? Grant it we don’t know which Montreal will show up and which Price will show up. Suffice to say that Montreal right now is a very fragile team. My only point is that won game 2 with a good performance and great goaltending minus three players. That has to count for something. Then game three they suck and score only 1 goal. What to say about Therrien? Will the real Habs please sob up? Or, was that them in game 3? I’m talking about talent, which they don’t have in abundance, but at least show signs of game 2. Sens looked in all three games. I much prefer watching the better teams anyway. Chicago, Pitt, Rangers, Caps, etc.. now these guys show up to play every night.

      • dropthepuckeh - May 7, 2013 at 7:42 AM

        Obviously I do not have a crystal ball to say who will win the series but I can see that Montreal lacks class and character and it seems to be over flowing in Ottawa. Based on those evaluations I believe Ottawa wins the series. Basic deduction.

      • mhaubach - May 7, 2013 at 8:37 AM

        I certainly do not see the Habs coming back from that. If the score is close, then it could be a game, but this doesn’t look like a team that can handle a multi-goal deficit.

    • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 7, 2013 at 8:42 AM

      If they lack character as you say they do, then how do you explain game 2 win with not one, not two, but three regular players out of the lineup? If that doesn’t demonstrate character in your eyes then what does?

      • dropthepuckeh - May 7, 2013 at 9:59 AM

        Dude its the playoffs, guys get hurt every night. Having hurt players doesn’t mean they have character. Yes they won but they are also the 2nd seed playing the 7th seed. I expect they would win a game or two. That isn’t character. Go troll the gymnastics board.

      • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 7, 2013 at 10:56 AM

        Hold on there friend. No one is trolling here. I agree with you. Having hurt players doesn’t mean you have character. Winning with hurt players demonstrates some character. Surely you see the difference. The only assurance you get with seeding is home ice advantage or not. Case and point; Van vs SJ. Seed is not a measure of who should or will win.

    Shut up, Subban! Take the Ritalin as prescribed.

    He’s not going to remember much after tonight, either, when Neil throws a flying elbow that fractures his skull and puts him out for a year.

    We all have dreams…

    • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 7, 2013 at 8:51 AM

      C’mon! I’m sure you can do better than this.

  13. drewsylvania - May 7, 2013 at 8:50 AM

    While we’re at it, who on Ottawa is the best candidate to do the same to Bourque? He’s arguably worse.

  14. csilojohnson - May 7, 2013 at 9:56 AM

    I’ve never seen so many players on the same team, at the same time, get beat down in the manor the Habs did. The only fight they didn’t was Subbans. Pretty disgraceful on PK’s part though. He continues to prove he is one of the biggest punks in the game.
    Tanger for the Norris!

    • homelanddefense - May 7, 2013 at 3:55 PM

      youtube canadiens vs bruins feb 9 2011. Although Ference loses to Moen the rest are bloodbaths.

    Did Habsman get the Shanaban? Noticeably absent after his team’s meltdown.
