Following the New York Rangers 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, head coach John Tortorella and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist criticized the Habs for playing a very boring style of hockey.
The Canadiens players aren't too concerned by the Rangers comments with P.K. Subban saying he sees it as a compliment.
"When other teams are talking about your system, that means they noticed it," said Subban. "There are a lot of teams in the league that have systems but you don't always notice."
Erik Cole summed it up perfectly on how the Canadiens felt about the criticism.
"They can call it boring or whatever but I call it two points," added Cole.
Getting the win was the only thing the players cared about and head coach Michel Therrien said his team will continue to play their style of hockey again tonight.
They might have to do it without Brandon Prust, who will be a game time decision with an upper body injury. The injury seemed to have occurred in Thursday's game against the New York Islanders and he was not at practice on Friday.
The good news for the Canadiens is that Brendan Gallagher is cleared to play after missing three games with a concussion.
