Video: Subban snaps 23-game goalless drought

May 1, 2014, 8:41 PM EDT

It’s been a while since P.K. Subban rippled the mesh — Mar. 3, to be exact — so it had to be extra sweet snapping that slump against Montreal’s arch rival Boston in the opening game of their second-round series:

The official scoring on the goal was Subban from Andrei Markov and Tomas Plekanec. It’s also worth noting the goal came on the power play, as it was just the third PP marker Boston surrendered this postseason after killing 18 of 20 penalties against Detroit in the opening round.

As for Subban’s productivity — while he hasn’t found the back of the net with regularity, that doesn’t mean he isn’t racking up points. He led the Habs with five assists in their Round 1 sweep over Tampa Bay, and came into the Boston series tied for the team lead in points (five) with Lars Eller and Brendan Gallagher.

    Boston doesn’t have a chance. Price is gonna show why he’s the better goaltender. Montreal moves the puck much better than the lowly Bruins.

      Count your blessing right now. Krug and Iginla both had some quality chances.

    • sabatimus - May 1, 2014 at 9:20 PM

      They sure do move the puck well, when there’s a 5 on 4 due to a dive by Weise. Classic.

    What a joke this bruins team is. Had a PP and couldn’t capitalize on two chances. Not to mention a whiff of a shot from the point in open ice by an unnamed bruins defenseman.

    • jcmeyer10 - May 1, 2014 at 9:15 PM

      Haha, calm down. They are just trying to figure this team out right now. They are 5 solid scoring chances from being up in this. Iginla, Eriksson and Krug pot their goals are you calling this team a joke?

  3. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 9:24 PM

    Haha. They’ve had a chance all year. They have proved they can’t “figure” Montreal out. Montreal was 3-0-1 against the Bruins this year. Rask has only won 3 games out of 15 career games against Montreal.

      I bet you enjoy thumbing up your own posts.

    And Iginla is old. Krejci is having frustrations. Marchand can’t relax. And Chara is just a big, old, statue on the ice. Just stands there and when people run into him and fall, the unintelligent stand up and cheer as if Chara delivered a hit on purpose.

      I bet if you post another comment people will start to agree with you.

      • jcmeyer10 - May 1, 2014 at 9:44 PM

        Amen. Look at what this joke of a team did. The B’s have been a step off this entire game and they finally put it all together. Smith also avoided neutering Bergeron.

      Tie game putz! Keep talking out of your a$$! Hockey games are 3 periods long. Shouldnt count your chickens before they hatch. Bruins out playing the Habnots!

  5. paperkid96 - May 1, 2014 at 9:45 PM

    Yep, and Detroit was 3-1 against Boston too. Boston lost that first game. Didnt work out well after that.

  6. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 10:01 PM

    Lmao. I’m posting off my phone. Can’t thumbs up or down on any of the misinformed comments on here. Besides, Detroit faced Boston as an 8th seed. And still won a game. Montreal faced Tampa which was a 4th seed. And SWEPT them. Montreal is now up 3-2 with 6:30 left. Keep wishing Bruins fans.

    • lordstanley65 - May 1, 2014 at 11:18 PM

      Funny how ALL OF A SUDDEN you have no “thumbs up’s” after getting called out.

  7. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 10:02 PM

    I don’t count any chickens before they hatch. I just recognize a good egg when I see one, fool.

    • sabatimus - May 1, 2014 at 10:16 PM

      You should do stand-up.

  8. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 10:04 PM

    Not many fans out there that are fans of BS. I know I don’t like bulls**t

  9. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 10:17 PM

    I should stand-up and commend the bruins on 3 flukey goals

  10. LampyB - May 1, 2014 at 10:21 PM

    Dubble is eating his words. What a moron. You’re the guy that lacks a brain and runs his mouth to make up for it.

    Price is so superior that its 3-3 and he’s collapsed in the playoffs the past few years. You’re such an idiot, lol.

  11. joey4id - May 1, 2014 at 10:29 PM

    Those French Canadian referees are not what they used to be. Only a couple of weeks ago they knocked out the Bolts. Seems like they’re letting the Habs down thus far. Eh! Bruins’ fan. Time for Bergevin to give GB a call.

  12. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 10:31 PM

    And lampy is a campy old fool. I’m not eating nothing. Doesn’t matter who wins this game. Fact is, Montreal will end your season. Just watch. My bet? Lampy will go to bed crying cuz Montreal won the opener in overtime and negated home-ice advantage.

  13. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 10:33 PM

    By the way…how many shots has Price faced compared to Rask? Lmao

  14. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 10:34 PM

    Rask stopped 20 of 23 shots. Price has stopped 30 of 33. So go sit in your cave and hibernate. Cuz that’s what the bruins will be doing after this series is over.

  15. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 10:35 PM

    Now 34 of 37

  16. LampyB - May 1, 2014 at 10:53 PM

    Still running your mouth? I’m not a Bruins fan, but can clearly see why the Habs fan base tries to justify the diving. When you’re not as good you cling to whatever you can.

  17. LampyB - May 1, 2014 at 10:58 PM

    Price is the only player on the Habs serious about winning right now.

  18. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 11:33 PM

    Hahahaha. Suban mofos!!

  19. dubblelznhell - May 1, 2014 at 11:34 PM

    I haven’t thumbs up anythings
