Afternoon Line

We watched closely replays from last week’s hard-fought game against Tampa—a potential first-round playoff matchup. Subban and Tampa captain Vincent Lecavalier battled for position in front of the Montreal net in a great old-time hockey war of wills. As the two circled behind the net, Subban delivered a wicked two-hander to Lecavalier, earning him a two-minute minor for slashing, and as they returned to the front of the net Lecavalier responded with his own nasty two-hander.

Subban went down like a ton of bricks, and Lecavalier was ejected from the game.

Was Subban hurt? Maybe. Maybe not. He did not leave the game and the Habs ended up winning in a shootout.

Maybe the ends justify the means. But we have to admit, we’d rather Subban just suck it up and take what he dishes out. To us that is the greater measure of the man.
