Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban received his fair share of boos when he touched the puck when tonight’s game against the Boston Bruins started, but he’ll almost certainly hear more in future meetings. He didn’t exactly earn bonus points for “turtling” after this elbow on David Krejci, either. The question is: will a call from Brendan Shanahan be in his near future?

Obviously Subban’s hit wasn’t the biggest story involving the Habs on Thursday, but it could have an impact on the team if he gets suspended.
