It was another frustrating result Wednesday for the Montreal Canadiens, and head coach Michel Therrien placed the blame on his star player.

P.K. Subban turned the puck over, setting the stage for Colorado Avalanche forward Jarome Iginla's eventual game-winner with just two minutes remaining in regulation.

Therrien had some harsh words for Subban - who was benched for the remainder of the game following the play - during his postgame scrum.

"It's too bad that an individual mistake cost us the game late in the game," Therrien said.

"We play as a team, and at the end of the game when we don't play as a team, we could be in trouble and this is what happened."

Subban said the turnover was the result of him losing an edge, indicating it's a play he usually makes with regularity.

"If I had to do it over again, I'd try not to have lost an edge," Subban said. "I think I put myself in positions a lot where I have control in one hand and I use my body to shield it. In that position, he didn't really do anything, I just crossed over and lost an edge."

He added, "I didn't anticipate losing an edge in that situation."

One way or another, it's going from bad to worse in Montreal with every passing game.
