P.K. Subban is like a great new band. The album hasn’t even dropped, and there’s already an influx of hype and promos. In the case of Subban, his first career NHL regular season goal was the unreleased album – until he bagged one on the power play at 5:19 of the 1st period in Boston on Thursday.
It’s probably not going to be the last power play goal of young Subban’s career. It’s kind of surprising that it’s taken him over 15 games to notch his first goal, considering the offensive gifts he’s blessed with. Jordan Eberle’s first goal it’s not, but the puck will look just as nice on the mantle. The 21-year old defenceman scored a playoff goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins in April.
Subban, who played 3:44 in parts of five Montreal power plays, put the Canadiens up 1-0 on the Bruins before Zdeno Chara tied the game later in the 1st. Montreal scored two more in the 3rd period to take the game by a final of 3-1 for their second straight win.
