Subban Shows Frustration at Canadiens Practice

Perhaps it was frustration from sitting out five of the past 12 games which got the better of P.K. Subban who got into a heated discussion with a couple of his Montreal Canadiens teammates during Monday morning practice. Subban who has 11 points and a -1 rating in 31 games this year apparently was taking out some bent up frustrations with teammate Tomas Plekanec in practice when Maxim Lapierre came over and began jawing with Subban. At that point veteran defenceman Roman Hamrlik broke up the confrontation just before things turned physical. Naturally Subban emphasized afterwards that what happened was no big deal. “It’s practice, it’s battling. It’s tough,” Subban said. “When you’re doing three-on-two drills and three-on-three, there is going to be chippy battles in front of the net. You’ve just got to work through it. It was a good practice today.” Subban, who was defended afterwards by team captain Brian Gionta for his actions told the media that despite being disappointed about not playing he will continue to work hard and be ready when called upon. In a tail spin which has seen the Canadiens lose six of their past eight games, there is a good chance that Subban will very shortly be back playing. “Like I said at the start of the year my mentality is to come to the rink everyday, trying to learn and get better. It’s the same thing now,” said Subban. “Everyday you’re learning in a different way and you have to take it all in positively. Today was just another opportunity for me to go out there and get better and try to make the best of it.”
