Just as it seemed nothing could go wrong for the Predators, star defenseman P.K. Subban made a limping exiting near the end of Monday’s 4-1 victory over the Penguins in Game 4 when he blocked a shot from Evgeni Malkin.
With just 7:18 left in the game, Subban laid out to get in front of a Malkin one-timer from the high slot when it hit his left ankle.
Subban attempted to put weight on the leg, but had to be helped off the ice by a trainer and went into the locker room with the Predators leading 3-1.

After the game, Subban, with a slight limp, downplayed the extent of any injury and repeatedly stressed the importance of the rest that will come with 48 hours between now and Game 5 in Pittsburgh. Despite missing the end of the game, Subban still led all skaters in ice time with 25:09.

Just kind of hit me where I didn’t have any padding, he said. That’s it. It hurts.
It wasn’t Pouliot’s fault the Oilers thought he was worth $20 million. He never lived up to that sort of production, so the team cut bait after a frustrating third season together. In Buffalo, the 30-year-old analytics darling will pocket that buyout money and should be motivated by a one-year, prove-it contract. He might even see top-six minutes for the wing-needy Sabres.
Contrary to the Carey Price extension (more on that below), the Sharks locked up their franchise goalie at an affordable rate. Jones is 27 and neither the term nor the cap hit should cripple future roster decisions. He’s not yet an elite goalie, but San Jose is set in net for six years and positioned well in the short term to return to the Cup Final.
