P.K. Subban doesn't agree with the suggestion that the Canadiens were a team in transition.
"It's easy to say we're in transition, but we finished first in our division, we've had two pretty good years (in the playoffs)," Subban said. "The expectations are high. You look at all the young players on our team and you can say we’re in transition, but the Tampa Bay Lightning have just as many young players on their team. So I don't think there are any excuses. We fell short." Subban, who turned 26 on Wednesday, had the best season of his career in 2014-15 with 15 goals and 60 points in 82 games. He wants to take advantage of Montreal's window to win a championship, but admitted that Montreal did not play "well enough to contend for a championship." May 13 - 4:24 PM

The Montreal Canadiens went 0-for-3 on the man-advantage against Tampa Bay on Saturday night, and they are now 2-for-34 in the postseason.

The Canadiens did seem to have better movement and more scoring opportunities on their first two power plays on Saturday (they also hit three goalposts on the PP) but they were unable to score. Their final power play was clearly their worst of the game, as they failed to generate constant pressure on the Lightning. The Canadiens power play has struggled all year and it doesn't look like they will be able to get it together anytime soon.

The outspoken P.K. Subban may have provided a little more incentive to Ben Bishop to play well in Game 5 Saturday night.

Subban made the following statement at the Habs' practice Friday: "I think Bishop sort of was sitting on a horseshoe for a little bit there. He’s played well, but he’s been lucky as well. I think seeing him pulled out of the net is a confidence booster for our team." Not what you want one of your team leaders saying on the eve of an elimination game. Lightning coach Jon Cooper responded as follows: "He may be right. Or Ben might be a good goalie. P.K. is a character, he’s a fun guy to have in the league for statements like that." Saturday night's Game 5 should be an interesting one for certain.
May 9 - 9:49 AM

PK Subban sparked Montreal's offense when he made a pretty pass to a streaking Andre Markov, who gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead just 2:44 into the game. They'd go on to win Game Four 6-2 on Thursday night.

Subban was a force all night long, stimulating the offense while guarding the crease during his 25:34 of work. Subban also had three shots, a hit and a block during that time. He leads the team with six assists and seven points.

P.K. Subban is a nominee for the Norris, but he has only one trophy in mind right now.

"There's nothing I want more than a Stanley Cup," Subban said. "(Carey Price) congratulated me and I said we are both going (to Las Vegas for the June 24 NHL Awards) but let's win the Cup and we can bring the whole team." He picked up a goal and three assists in six games against Ottawa in the first round of the playoffs.

P.K. Subban is a finalist for the Norris Trophy.

He registered 60 points for the first time in his career in 2014-15. Subban also set personal bests with 15 goals, 45 assists and a plus-21 rating. He won the award in 2012-13.
Apr 27 - 6:44 PM

The Montreal Canadiens have struggled to gain momentum on their power play attempts in their first round series against Ottawa.

Instead of helping the Habs, the power play has continuously zapped their momentum. Montreal is now 1-for-19 on the man advantage, and they will need to change that if they want to put their opponent away. Ottawa went 2-for-4 on the power play in Friday's game five win in Montreal. The Senators have done a good job taking away P.K. Subban's one-timer from the point, and the Canadiens have failed to find another successful strategy.
Apr 26 - 8:50 AM

P.K. Subban displayed a tremendous performance in Game 3 versus Ottawa.

He didn't pick up a point in the match, but he played a game-high 33:01, posted a game-high eight shots, with six more attempts blocked, had a team-high six hits, and he added a blocked shot. Subban has one goal and two assists in three games in Montreal's opening round series, which could end in a sweep on Wednesday night.
Apr 20 - 11:10 AM

P.K. Subban added more fuel to the fire on Thursday when he spoke to the media about his slashing incident in Game 1 on Ottawa forward Mark Stone.

"I've been slashed a lot harder than that," Subban said. "I don't think it was that hard. I didn't even really look at where I was putting my stick but (by) the same token, the ref's standing right there, it's not a smart play. I can look at everybody else and point fingers but it's on me. I made the decision to slash him there. So I got the penalty and hurt my team." Subban's slash resulted in a microfracture and ligament damage to Stone's wrist. The Senators were unhappy with the play, but the onus will be on them to stay disciplined in Game 2.
Apr 17 - 9:43 AM

P.K. Subban won't be facing supplemental discipline for his slash on Ottawa's Mark Stone.

NHL discipline chief Stephane Quintal feels the major for slashing was sufficient enough. Subban was tossed from Montreal's 4-3 victory at the 8:23 mark of the second period.
Apr 16 - 10:53 AM

P.K. Subban received a slashing major and a game misconduct for chopping the wrist of Ottawa winger Mark Stone on Wednesday night.

The Canadiens didn't feel the major infraction was necessary, while the Senators were asking for a suspension after the game. Subban ended up with an impressive fantasy showing in Game 1 despite logging just 9:05 of ice time. He had 15 penalty minutes, two shots, two assists and a plus-1 rating.
Apr 16 - 10:46 AM

P.K. Subban had a pair of assists in a 4-3 overtime win versus Detroit on Thursday night.

Defense partner Andrei Markov also had two points in the match, with a goal and an assist. Subban had the primary helper on Markov's marker and both of them had an assist on Tomas Plekanec's power-play tally.
Apr 10 - 10:08 AM

PK Subban drilled his 14th goal of the season in Monday's 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

It was a beauty of a goal, too. Slamming home a bomb from the point on the power play. The goal was Subban's seventh with the man advantage of the season, raising his power play points total to 19. He now has 54 points this season, a new career high.
Mar 31 - 12:03 AM

The NHL has fined P.K. Subban $3,000 for embellishment.

Subban leads the league with three embellishment charges against him. That's certainly not something that he wants to have associated with him. The hope is that the embarrassment of receiving these fines will encourage reform even if the fines themselves don't hit that hard given the kind of money players like Subban are making.
Mar 20 - 12:18 PM

P.K. Subban scored his 13th goal of the season Tuesday as the Canadiens outlasted Florida by a score of 3-2.

Subban's tally held up as the game winner and was the fifth goal scored by either team in the second period. With a fantastic second half, the Montreal defenseman has inserted himself into the Norris Trophy conversation. Jacob De La Rose and Alexei Emelin also scored for the Habs in the victory.
