Found February 05, 2013 on
from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban made a modest return to action on a perfect Super Bowl weekend. He was neither a commanding presence nor a step out of place, but rather one of a half-dozen blue-liners who contributed to a sweep of the Buffalo Sabres and Ottawa Senators.
And there’s not a thing wrong with that.
It’s just a shame, if you’re to believe one Hockey Night in Canada panellist, that Subban is disliked by everyone on his team, a young man who is profoundly troubled by the frosty shoulder of his teammates.
Presumably, this sadsack outcast dried his tears long enough to share meals Saturday and Sunday with Brandon Prust, then watch the Super Bowl at Josh Gorges’s home on Sunday with the rest of the Canadiens.
But we’ll come back to that.
@dave_stubbs part 3. Next time write an honest article without your #Habs pompoms on.

AROUND THE WEB
Canadiens goaltender Carey Price had a rough pre-game warmup prior to Wednesday’s Habs-Bruins rivalry matchup, as he got smoked in his reproductive pouch by a shot from teammate Lars Eller.
As you would expect from a man who just took a frozen rubber biscuit to the goodies at high-speed, Price doubled over in pain and immediately got the hell out of there, heading straight to the...
Habs, PK Subban has always been a pain in the ass, hopefully the Bruins show him who's boss
Wednesday night we may see one of the greatest games this season when the Bruins travel up to Montreal to face their best friends the Habs.
Montreal is no joke this year, well as of now. They own a 6-2-0 record with 12 points, clawing at the Bruins to take over the North East. They...
THE FAMILY JEWELS
Before the start of Wednesday night's Montreal Canadiens/Boston Bruins game, Montreal goaltender Carey Price was practicing guarding some warm-up shots from his teammates. Sadly for Price, one shot got away from center Lars Eller and hit Price in a very sensitive area as he tried to make the save: Price would end up being okay and started the game in goal for Montreal.

On February 5, 2013 the Colorado Avalanche claimed Montreal Canadiens forward Aaron Palushaj. Palushaj had been put on waivers a day earlier after being cleared to play, and it finally looked like the Hamilton Bulldogs were going to get some much needed offensive relief.
Palushaj was acquired by former Habs GM Pierre Gauthier from...
Tomorrow marks the first meeting between the Boston Bruins and MOntreal Canadiens. We all know the type of venom that this rivalry has brought over the years, but have fisticuffs been thrown to go with said venom? We're going to look at all of the fights that have occurred last season as Boston went 4-2-0 versus the Habs. We will post the video and the results of Hockeyfights...
8 a.m. ET: The Bruins and Canadiens (finally) renew their rivalry on Wednesday night when the B’s head north to take on the Habs for the first time in this shortened season. It’s a bit surprising that we had to wait this long, perhaps, but after eight games, the Bruins tangle with the Canadiens for the first time in 2013.
It’s a rather important game, as all divisional games...
