Senators coach Cameron: Suspend Subban or else

Dave Cameron addressed the media with some interesting comments regarding PK Subban's slash on Mark Stone.

Ottawa Senators coach Dave Cameron didn’t mince any words when asked what he thought of P.K. Subban’s slash on Mark Stone.

“I think it’s an easy solution: You either suspend him or one of their best players gets slashed and just give us five. Not that complicated,” Cameron told reporters at a post-game press conference following the Montreal Canadiens’ 4-3 win over the Senators.

Subban was assessed five minutes and a game misconduct in the second period. Although Stone returned to the game in the second period after the slash, he headed back to the dressing room early in the third period.

Stone wouldn’t go so far as to say Subban should be suspended for the hack job, opting rather to let the NHL do its job.

“He tried targeting me a few times after faceoffs in the first period,” Stone said. “He knew what he was doing…Obviously it was a pretty big hack. Looked like he wanted to hurt me.”

On the flipside, Canadiens coach Michel Therrien thought the ejection was harsh. “It was a slashing penalty no doubt, but I don’t think it was a major.”

Subban did not speak to the media.

So, who’s excited for Game 2?
