P.K. Subban let his elbow get away from him a bit on Thursday night in Boston. In the third period of a 2-0 game, the Canadiens defenseman lined up Bruins forward David Krejci for a big hit. Elbow tucked, it looked like it'd be fantastic. Then, out came the elbow, and boom, Krejci's face took the brunt of the damage.
Yes, the video after the jump features Jack Edwards.
Elbow right to the face. Andrew Ference didn't even wait until Krejci was on the ice before going right after Subban, who turtled just about as fast. We'd say he probably should've just fought like a man, but Ference's fist was probably down his throat before he even had a chance to drop his own gloves.
All in all, Subban only picked up a two-minute minor for elbowing on the play, while Ference picked up a double minor for roughing. On the ensuing power play, Montreal actually scored their lone goal of the hockey game, which would have been a total mess in the Boston media if the Habs came back to win the hockey game.
But, alas, we were spared such outrage with a Bruins win. That doesn't mean we'll escape it if Subban isn't rightfully suspended, however. You can't elbow people in the head. It's really kind of a simple concept.
Then again, Subban could always just claim self-defense...
