Canadiens rookie defenceman P.K. Subban will be a healthy scratch tonight vs. the New Jersey Devils. Yannick Weber will be back in the lineup.
Subban didn’t enjoy his best game last night, twice burned on goals by the Edmonton Oilers in the visitors’ 4-3 overtime win at the Bell Centre.
But coach Jacques Martin’s decision to scratch Subban is bound to create a stir among fans of the team, who will point to underachieving players with more experience than the rearguard who haven’t been similarly left out of uniform this season.
