One of the league’s most storied rivalries will write a new chapter on Monday night at the Bell Center.
For the first time at the NHL level, brothers P.K. and Malcolm Subban will face each other when the Habs host the Bruins in Montreal.
The team is looking to rebound from Sunday’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Sabres, a game in which Montreal iced a remarkably young lineup — “we had six or seven guys who could still be playing junior,” said head coach Michel Therrien.
Malcolm, Boston’s first-round selection at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, will get the start for the Bruins in his first extended look at the NHL level.
After spending three years in goal for OHL Belleville, Malcolm is expected to challenge for a gig with AHL Providence this season, though he’ll be in tough battling with Niklas Svedberg, the league’s reigning goalie of the year.
