P.K. Subban was the talk of the Senators dressing room Friday.
Only because the players were asked.
In the mourning after a 5-4 OT loss to the Montreal Canadiens, the players were asked for their reaction to the celebration by the Habs’ defenceman after he scored the winner only 23 seconds into the extra session.
It was something to watch: Leaping into the arms of his teammates near the club’s bench and then pulling on the crest out front while motioning to the crowd. Apparently he was excited and hadn’t scored in a while.
Goalie Craig Anderson noted the celebration was “unnecessary.”
Players can do what they want. There is no rulebook for what you are can and can’t do. He was happy to have gotten a big two points in a game where the Habs came back. A reader noted to me that Subban had been booed all night and this was his revenge. I don’t disagree with that either.
I actually didn’t mind the celebration nor do I really care what players do but here’s the thing people can’t seem to get through their heads: If players are asked the questions, I report the news. It’s not my job to pass judgement on it and by reporting it that doesn’t mean I agree with the players either.
I want to add video of the celebration here I will try:
