Montreal Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien is a man who takes no issue with making news with what he says, especially if it’s going to help his hockey club. Therrien was more than willing to run his mouth following the wild Game 3 between Montreal and Ottawa on Sunday night, when he called a late Senators timeout in a 6-1 Ottawa win “classless.” The Montreal bench boss was at it again Monday when meeting with the media. This time around, however, Therrien was lobbying for calls, especially in regards to two of his young stars. Therrien said that both forward Brendan Gallagher and defenseman P.K. Subban were being targeted by the Senators and it was going uncalled. Of course, Subban had no problem being seen in Game 3. When it was all said and done, he was given seven penalties totaling 25 minutes, including an early exit following a fight with Kyle Turris in the third period. Subban was seen pounding on Turris even as Turris lay on the ice with a linesman in between the two. Gallagher was also involved in the fisticuffs, as he went after Cory Conacher in the third period, basically forcing Conacher into a fight. Apparently Therrien must feel those penalties and fights were all done in retaliation, as he repeatedly mentioned it during his media availability Monday. Here are some tweets from those on the scene.
