Devils' Subban could be in hot water again after Rangers' Blais injured

Watch as P.K. Subban gets tangled up with Sammy Blais, who goes down to an injury and is forced to leave the game in the third period.

New Jersey Devils defenceman P.K. Subban has drawn the ire of the New York Rangers again after forward Sammy Blais had to be helped off the ice following a collision Sunday night.

Chasing a puck in the corner, Subban and Blais came together, with Subban's skate clipping Blais' as they battled. Blais fell into the boards and appeared to turn either his knee or his ankle awkwardly. He went down immediately and clutched his leg, his face contorted in agony. No penalty was called on the play.

Subban has been fined twice this season for slew-footing, including once for a pre-season encounter with the Rangers' Ryan Reaves. Rangers coach Gerard Gallant saw some similarities between the two incidents: "A lot like the Reaves one that I saw," he told reporters after the game.

Subban, 32, has one goal and six assists in 14 games this season for the Devils.
