Mike Richards Calls Out Montreal’s Subban, Hartnell Says He was Choked

Oh boy.  Next Monday night's game against the Canadiens in Philadelphia should be a blast.

Last night, Canadiens rookie defenseman P.K. Subban was clearly getting under the skin of Mike Richards, especially when he interfered with Richards as he was about to get into a third period fight. Richards was yelling something at Subban in the penalty box, and now we have an idea as to what it was about.  Richards after the game:  [via Puck Daddy]

"He's a guy that's come in the League and hasn't earned respect. It's just frustrating to see a young guy like that come in here and so much as think that he's better than a lot of people. You have to earn respect in this League. It takes a lot. You can't just come in here as a rookie and play like that. It's not the way to get respect from other players around the League."

"Hopefully someone on their team addresses it, because, uh, I'm not saying I'm going to do it but something might happen to him of he continues to be that cocky.

Oh boy.

Here's the audio via Team 990 in Montreal:

Wow.  If that wasn't enough to stir the pot, Scott Hartnell says he was chocked at the bottom of a scrum.  Audio after the jump.

And now seems like a good time for a shameless plug.  We have a bunch of first level tickets available for said contest against the Canadiens starting around $70 at Crossing Broad Tickets.

This could get ugly.

  1. You know what, I love what Richie said. As a captain, you have to stand up for what you believe and it got me pumped up. I can’t wait for Monday because it’s gonna get nasty on Broad Street and the better team will win.

  2. Richards is a man of his word, which is why he is captain. He is the epitome of a hockey player with a combination of skill and heart. Richards saying “uh I’m not saying I’m going to do it, but something might happen to him” is not a threat, that is a promise.

  3. This isn’t the first time.. Subban has always been cocky, since the playoffs last year. I was really hoping he’d get his act straight because he’s not that bad at hockey, but i guess Richards is just gonna have to teach him a lesson.

  4. Poor kid is going to get his head taken off… ask the bruins kracji or however you spell it how hard richie hits when he hit him into the hospital and ended his playoff career in 2009/2010. Suban will be taught a valuable lesson when the flyers romp the habs in a tilted score and richie levels him while he skates with his head down across our blue line.
