P.K. Subban is playing like a guy that is on his way to winning another Norris Trophy.
It's pretty much accepted league-wide that Subban is one of the most skilled and offensively gifted defensemen in the league. Despite all of the success, as well as the Norris Trophy from a season ago, there still seems to be a belief out there that he has some problems in his own end of the ice and is too much of a risk-taker. That wasn't showing up on Monday night against the New Jersey Devils.
Subban saved not just one, but two potential goals in Montreal's 3-2 win.
Here he is in the first period preventing what would have been a sure goal for Jaromir Jagr.
And here is a shot of him in the third period, doing the same to Damien Brunner on a puck that snuck behind Carey Price.

As if that wasn't enough, he also added his 20th assist of the season in the second period when he helped set up a Rene Bourque goal.
Just think, there is still an ongoing debate as to whether or not he's going to make the Canadian Olympic team.
