Subban has three assists, who totaled 18 points in 20 games. “He played probably his best hockey career, supported Therrien. PK was asked to keep it simple and focus to make a good first pass. He is a player excited by the game and it can easily get out of the game plan, but the past two weeks, it is solid in defense and he does not run unnecessary risks. ‘
Captain Brian Gionta, who played one game with the Canadiens 200th, scored his ninth of the season was the 3-0 mark and gave a serious blow to the side of the Panthers in the second period. A little over two minutes later, Gionta has an accomplice on the first season of Francis Bouillon. It was then 4-0.
Therrien praised the contribution of his great offensive. He argued that the purpose of Bouillon had done poorly the Panthers. “The defenders must be active attack because the clubs are so good defensively. We do not lace, it puts the puck in the net. The purpose of Bouillon, this was a big one. ‘

We did not embark on their game We’re able to play physical, but we did not fall into the abuse. ‘
The absence of ten days Brandon Prust did not seem to face the worst team in the circuit, which was not in the scope of the entire game despite two goals in the third. Florida has fired only 16 times in the direction of the Canadian cage. Prust, as we know, suffered a sprained left shoulder in Saturday’s game against Tampa Bay.
