NHL Playoffs: Thornton vs. Subban, Water War (GIF)

The NHL Playoffs are in full swing, and the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens series is red-hot.. But, last night Shawn Thornton gave P.K. Subban a quick shower. I’m going to go out on a limb and say Tornton was not trying to cool things off. Lucky for us Yahoo Sports as a GIF.

You need to look closely if you want to see it, but there is little doubt that Thornton was attempting to give Subban a little drink on his way past the Bruins bench. I’m not one to call things like this an outrage, however this prank will likely be view and several things. I’m sure some people will bring up “cheater”, some may go as far as to bring up racism in hockey, but I think it was just a matter of poor judgment.  P.K. had this to say about the incident…

“I don’t know if it was him, but somebody had squirted water twice at the end of the game there. It hit me in the visor and I couldn’t even see for the last-minute and a half out there. I was pretty upset about that. It’s part of the game,” [Yahoo]

But, in an effort to not over shadow Mothers Day lets save the heavy stuff for another day. More importantly the Bruins took a 3-2 lead in the series, and have the Canadiens on their heals. Last nights games had incredible pace, and showed why the NHL Playoffs are such an incredible tournament.
