Malcolm Subban tops P.K. as Bruins win 6-3

--

MONTREAL - The much-anticipated first NHL meeting between brothers Malcolm and P.K. Subban turned out to be a bit of a dud.

P.K. Subban, the Norris Trophy winning defenceman for the Montreal Canadiens, managed one feeble shot against 19-year-old Malcolm, a goaltending prospect for the arch-rival Boston Bruins.

Malcolm Subban stopped all 12 shots he faced -- none of them terribly difficult -- after entering the game in relief of Chad Johnson midway through the second frame.

"I didn't get very many shots, but it was good for sure," said the younger Subban, a top goalie in the Ontario Hockey League for the Belleville Bulls who was a 2012 first-round pick by Boston. "Obviously it was a great experience and a fun time."

P.K. Subban, who had beaten Johnson with a rocket on a power play in the second period, didn't get much on his one attempt on his brother.

Jarome Iginla scored twice, including the game-winner, while Nick Johnson, with two, David Krejci and Zach Trotman also had goals for the Bruins, who scored three each on Carey Price and Robert Mayer. Boston went 4-for-6 on the power play.

Travis Moen, Max Pacioretty and Subban scored as Johnson allowed three goals on only eight shots.

The Subbans' father, grandfather and next door neighbour were in from Toronto to see them play against each other for the first time at the level.

It's something that is likely to be a regular occurrence in regular season and even playoff games once Malcolm is established as an NHL goalie.

Then they will be part of the bitter rivalry between teams that are old foes. …
