Bruins prospect Malcolm Subban admits to rooting for Canadiens in playoffs

July 31, 1:02 PM

After Brad Marchand publicly declared his hate for Tomas Plekanec, one player within the Boston Bruins organization was rooting for the Montreal Canadiens during the rivals' playoff showdown this past spring.

You know what they say: Bros before Corsis.

Malcolm, the younger Subban, was drafted by Boston back in 2012, but has yet to appear in a game at the NHL level. We're certain his tune will change if and when he's in net for the Bruins for a future playoff game against the Canadiens.

P.K. Subban doesn't find anything wrong with brother cheering for him, Canadiens

Aug 5, 10:16 AM

The Montreal Canadiens locked up defenseman P.K. Subban with an eight-year, $72-million contract Saturday. It's safe to say he won't be reuniting with any of his brothers in the near future.

Last week, Boston Bruins goaltending prospect and Subban's brother Malcolm admitted to cheering for the Canadiens - a Bruins rival - in the playoffs.

P.K. responded to the report on the Marek vs. Wyshynski podcast.

"If you're not going to cheer for your brother in the playoffs, I don't know who you're supposed to cheer for. We all support each other. But I'm sure if he was playing against me, he wouldn't want me to do well."

Well said, P.K.
