Killing Me Softly

Shank's Thursday column expands on the Bruins - Canadiens series and focuses on the best player in the series so far, P.K. Subban:
MONTREAL — He is Pernell Karl “P.K.” Subban, and you cannot take your eyes off him. He is Montreal’s best player and he is the man who is thus far killing the Bruins in their conference semifinal series.

Subban is everywhere on the ice. He is in the middle of all the action. He has scored three goals in three games and he is, in the words of former Celtics general manager Jan Volk, “the consummate provocateur.’’

It is hard to remember anyone who has made more news in the first three games of any playoff series. Subban has 6 points in three games and has been involved in multiple controversies. He has thus far been better than (gulp) Zdeno Chara.
Overall, a pretty good column by the Shankster; his better columns, naturally, come at the expense of the local teams. Funny how that works!
