P.K. Subban throws Matt Cooke's stick across the ice

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

P.K. Subban did not take this apparent slew foot from Matt Cooke very well. He threw his stick across the ice.

In the first period of their game on Tuesday night in Montreal, Canadiens defenseman was hauled down behind the net by Wild forward Mat Cooke. Even though there was no penalty called on the play, it appeared to be a slew foot.

Subban was not thrilled by this development and decided to do the only reasonable thing he could at that moment: rip Cooke' stick out of his hand and throw it across the ice.

Of course this play would involve these two players.

Cooke is typically public enemy No. 1 in most NHL arenas given his history of suspension worthy hits, while Subban has been accused of delivering a few slew foot moves of his own over the years.

Even if the NHL reviews the play and decides that it was in fact a slew foot, you shouldn't expect anything more than a fine from the league as it never suspends players for these types of plays.
