With 2:00 to go in tonight's game against Carolina (Montreal looked shaky but a very satisfying win), P.K. Subban picked the puck up as Mtl were clearing the zone. Everyone on both teams went to change, and so Subban didn't just dump it out. He ragged the puck, for about 25 seconds he ragged it around his own defensive zone as the Hurricanes chased after him in ones and twos like Keystone Kops. And you could hear everyone sort of not breathing, as he turned around and around, behind the net, faking a breakout, turning back, in, out, behind the net again, and finally pinged a perfect pass to a wide open forward at the red line. And the crowd just roared, a deep and satisfied and delighted release of pent-up breath.
L'audace, encore de l'audace, toujours de l'audace!
