The Subbans Cheer for Each Other
The Montreal Canadiens deserved to beat the Bruins, and while P.K. Subban appeared in headlines, for both his eye-catching performances and Twitter attacks, his brother has appeared in the news for an unremarkable reason.
Malcolm Subban cheered for his brother in the playoffs, despite being a member of the B’s, seeing time at goaltender in the AHL with the Providence B’s.
Family takes priority over the semi-pro affiliate paying your bills. It makes sense to me, and P.K. reiterated that sentiment during a podcast with Yahoo! Sports, where he discussed his massive contract extension among other topics.
“I don’t think Malcolm really cares,” said P.K. Subban.
“If you’re not going to cheer for your brother in the playoffs, I don’t know who you’re supposed to cheer for,” he said. “We all support each other.”
If the younger Subban was the NHL Bruins starter in net, then his competitive nature could have gotten the better of him against his older brother.
“But I’m sure if he was playing against me, he wouldn’t want me to do well,” P.K. said.
Sibling rivalry aside, goaltender Subban is actually a promising prospect for the Bruins, but Tuukka Rask inked an eight-year extension last summer, and Niklas Svedberg presents stiff competition, bringing about the notion that Subban could be included in a trade.
