The Canadiens' pyrrhic victory

pyr·rhic1
ˈpirik/
adjective
  1. (of a victory) won at too great a cost to have been worthwhile for the victor.


P.K. Subban taken to hospital after suffering neck injury 

Really bad - for the Canadiens. I hate to say this, but they can probably forget about the playoffs, because without P.K. Subban, they don't have much of a game. Ok, they have Price...maybe. He skated in full equipment before practice Monday, but there is no time table for his return from injured reserve status. Without Subban or Price, I don't think the Canadiens can pull it off this year.

The really sad thing is, Subban had an amazing game last night. Just before puck drop, he received the Jean Béliveau Trophy. He then went on to log 29:55 minutes on the ice against the Sabres, including a whopping 6:57 shift during which he made his 45th assist (a career high) of the season.

However, as Subban was carried off the ice on a stretcher, he did give the crowd a thumbs up, and the Candiens' latest update says that he does have "normal movement" of his extremities, which is good news. Perhaps we will see him and Price on the ice again this season. One can only hope.
