At the 8:23 mark of the second period, Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct penalty for slashing Mark Stone. Was this the right call? I think it was.
Reading some of the comments online, there are some Canadiens fans that think that Subban was assessed an excessive penalty.
