P.K. Subban flies out of penalty box, beats Tuukka Rask on breakaway

There may not be a more exciting player in hockey right now.

It was the P.K. Subban show during the first period in Montreal on Tuesday night.

Not long after he helped set up Tomas Plekanec's goal to open scoring for the Montreal Canadiens, Subban came flying out of the penalty box and found himself on a clean breakaway against Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask.

Subban did not waste that opportunity, beating Rask with a slick move for his third goal and 11th point of the playoffs, both of which lead all defensemen in the postseason.

At times during this series, Boston has been dominant and able to dictate the pace of the game. The constant exception has been the minutes that Subban has been on the ice.
