“I’m talking about Tampa Bay’s Lecavalier, who became involved in a slashing affair with P.K. Subban late in the first period – after what appeared to be an attempted slew-foot by the first-year defenceman on Lecavalier. There was some pushing and shoving between the two, which is where this should have been brought to an abrupt stop by the officials with a couple of minor penalties – and wasn’t.

Only nine seconds remained when Lecavalier retaliated to a Subban slash with a two-hander which, in the view of the officials merited only a minor for the Canadiens defenceman and a slashing major and game misconduct for Lecavalier.

The easy thing would be to blame the officials, but the guy who should bear the brunt of the blame is Lecavalier. Subban is trying to develop a reputation, and the best way to do it is to get involved in clashes with superstars.

What I’m saying is that Lecavalier should know better than to react the way he did….”

Watch the slash if you missed this KK post last night.

The easy thing to do is to blame Lecavalier. Subban tried to trip him in front of the net and slashed him twice behind the net. He also faked and arm injury after being hit on the pants by Lecavalier. As for the ref after closing his eyes on the first part of the incident he got suck in by Subban embellishment.
