P.K. Subban knocks net off, Dale Weise mocks Bruins with celebration

MONTREAL — P.K. Subban regularly gets the Bruins off their game. In Game 3, he got the net off its moorings, which may have cost the Bruins the game.
With the B’s pushing to tie a 3-2 game in the final seconds of the game, the Canadiens defenseman — who had a goal and an assist in the game — skated into the goal post and knocked it off. Had he been called for it, the Bruins would have had a power play by virtue of a delay of game minor.
“After [Subban] rimmed the puck, Torey [Krug] got the puck and he found me. I had so much room in front of me, I could have walked in. You never what can happen with 8-10 seconds left,” David Krejci said. “Yeah, it was frustrating at the time, but I don’t know if that was a penalty or not.”
Patrice Bergeron is as measured a human being as there is, yet he struggled to downplay the infraction when asked about it after the game.
“He’s playing the clock and he’s trying to make something happen,” Bergeron said. “Maybe he felt that we were coming hard. You’ve got to leave it to the refs, and they didn’t make the call. It’s about bearing down and starting a lot earlier to make it a game.”
Meanwhile, Dale Weise pulled off a pretty good mock chest-pound after his second-period goal. The Bruins have celebrated big goals this season by pounding their chest repeatedly, with Milan Lucic and Krug taking part. After beating Tuukka Rask five-hole on a breakaway Tuesday, Weise got in on the fun.
