More drama from Sens-Habs as Murray says Subban threatened Stone before slash

37 Comments

While we can confirm there are seven other playoff series at hand, we also acknowledge it might not seem that way on PHT right now given all the wild developments between Ottawa and Montreal following P.K. Subban’s Game 1 ejection for slashing Mark Stone.

The latest, from Sens GM Bryan Murray:

Stone, who suffered a microfracture in his right wrist on the slash, is “very questionable” for the remainder of the series, per Murray. The Ottawa GM also said he told NHL discipline czar Stephane Quintal about Stone’s injury prior to the league deciding not to further punish Subban.

Game 2 goes Friday night at the Bell Center in what promises to be an emotional affair. Should Stone be unable to play, it looks as though veteran tough guy Chris Neil will draw into the Ottawa lineup — a decision that could turn this series into an even bigger powderkeg.
