MONTREAL (AP) Things looked to be getting nasty between P.K. Subban and his former teammates.Subban was held off the scoresheet and played a turnover-filled game Authentic David Perron Jersey , but his Nashville Predators still pulled out a 3-2 shootout victory on Saturday night – mainly thanks to the outstanding play of goalie Pekka Rinne who made 47 saves, including 10 in the five-minute overtime period.Ryan Ellis scored the only goal in the shootout to lift the Predators to the win.The Bell Centre crowd reacted with some boos but mostly cheers each time Subban had the puck. The flashy defenseman remains highly popular in Montreal after his trade to Nashville two summers ago for Shea Weber, who has been out since mid-December with a foot injury.The Canadiens went after Subban early in the game, with Nicolas Deslauriers putting a solid hit on him in the opening minute. And Subban and Brendan Gallagher went at each other in the first period, but the Canadiens’ forward was shaken up while trying to lay a big hit on his former teammate.”I didn’t see a smile from him tonight to be honest with you,” Subban said of Gallagher. ”I just saw the blood dripping down his face after he tried to hit me and fell down.”I didn’t see anything else. Other than that, it was just a normal game, as usual. Just competing in the battles and that’s it.”Gallagher tied the game 1-1 in the second period, then skated to over to the Nashville bench and appeared to say something to Subban.”I don’t think he said anything to me,” Subban said. ”Some guys from the bench were saying stuff, but I couldn’t hear it. … It’s so loud in this building. But I’m sure it’s pretty quiet over there now with two points on our side.”Gallagher said he didn’t want to discuss Subban, but still launched some barbs his way.”I don’t know why we’re talking about him – that’s what he wants,” Gallagher said. ”He comes in here and tries to make it about himself.”It was Subban’s second visit since the trade. Last season, the Canadiens prevailed 2-1.But the teams have gone in different directions since. The Predators have become one of the NHL’s top teams, while the Canadiens have had a disastrous campaign and will almost certainly miss the playoffs.Scott Hartnell and Kevin Fiala scored in regulation for Nashville.Jonathan Drouin also scored for the Canadiens, and Carey Price stopped 30 shots.Fiala gave the Predators a 2-1 lead with his 18th with 7:41 left in the third period. After the Canadiens pulled Price for an extra skater, Drouin tied it with his eighth with 1:14 remaining.”I thought we deserved better,” said Montreal coach Claude Julien, who didn’t want to talk about Subban. ”The game plan was to get pucks behind their defensemen, it wasn’t about P.K. Subban. Obviously the attention is on him because it always is, but it wasn’t about an individual.”Arturri Lehkonen stripped the puck from Filip Forsberg at the Nashville line. Gallagher grabbed it and saw his first shot blocked by Subban, but Gallagher picked up the rebound and beat Rinne from close range for his 20th goal of the season at 8:35 of the second.A bouncing puck in front of the Montreal net went to Nick Bonino, who slipped it to Hartnell for the tying score with 3:38 remaining in the middle period.After a sprawled Price made a glove save at the side of the net on Ryan Johansen, the Nashville center slipped the rebound back to uncovered Fiala for a backhander into an open side.NOTES: On Friday, Subban brought several Nashville teammates along as he visited the Montreal Children’s Hospital, to which he pledged to raise $10 million for when he played for the Canadiens and has stuck with even though he no longer lives in the city. … Forsberg returned after serving a three-game suspension for a high hit on Jimmy Vesey of the New York Rangers. … Half of the Predators’ defense are former Canadiens – Subban, Alexei Emelin and Yannick Weber. … Emelin took a penalty for an open-ice hit that was a knee-on-knee contact that left Nikita Scherbak limping in the first period.UP NEXTPredators: Host St. Louis on Tuesday night to start a four-game homestand.Canadiens: At Colorado on Wednesday night to open a four-game trip. TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Maple Leafs keep winning at home – even though they had to sweat a little in this one.Nazem Kadri scored with 7:26 left in regulation, helping the Maple Leafs extend their club-record home winning streak to 13 games with a 4-3 comeback victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.Kasperi Kapanen, Connor Brown and William Nylander had the other goals for Toronto, which also tied a franchise mark with its 45th win.”It was a fun game Womens Deryk Engelland Jersey ,” said Frederick Andersen, who made 38 saves and tied a career high with his 35th win of the season. ”A lot of different kinds of goals, but a fun game and obviously a good win for us. We stepped up a little bit in the third.”The Maple Leafs, who split a tough two-game road trip earlier this week against the Tampa Bay Lightning and Nashville Predators, trailed 3-2 early in the third period.”Detroit played really hard and made it hard on us,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. ”We told our team before they were going to make it hard on us.”Dylan Larkin, Tyler Bertuzzi and Frans Nielsen scored for Detroit and Jimmy Howard made 25 saves.We did tons of good stuff,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. ”There were large moments in the game (where) we carried the play.”The Red Wings went ahead 3-2 at 4:58 of the third period when Nielsen snapped his 15th short-side over Andersen’s shoulder and off the camera inside the Toronto net from a tight angle. The play was initially waved off for a goalie interference charge against Detroit’s Justin Abdelkader, but was overturned after a coach’s challenge.Nylander came back and tied it 2:29 later when he stole the puck from Nick Jensen along the boards in the offensive zone and played a slick give-and-go with Auston Matthews for his 16th.With the game tied, Kadri took a pass from Patrick Marleau over the stick of sprawling Red Wings defenseman Luke Witkowski on a 2-on-1 rush before scoring his 29th goal of the season.”Unbelievable,” Kadri said of Marleau’s pass. ”I knew when he took it to his backhand there was a chance it was coming across. … Unexplainable. Obviously, he had the great vision to put it on my stick. I just tried to find a lane for him to create that pass, but it was all him.”Kadri, 27, also marveled at how the 38-year-old Marleau continues to excel at his age.”I don’t know how he does it,” Kadri said. ”I couldn’t imagine when I’m (almost) 40 years old how I’m going to feel. He always seems to contribute, and he’s just got those great genetics.”After Kadri put Toronto ahead, Andersen had a nervous moment with 3:36 to go when Gustav Nyquist’s shot from outside the blue line went off his glove and landed in the crease before he covered up.Down 1-0 after the first, the Red Wings got even at 4:32 of the second when the speedy Larkin took a stretch pass from Anthony Mantha, who had knocked down Roman Polak’s point shot and raced in alone before beating Andersen between his arm and his body for his 12th.Detroit nearly went up 2-1 moments later when Martin Frk was awarded a penalty shot after getting slashed by Toronto’s Ron Hainsey on another breakaway, but Andersen closed his pads on Frk’s shot.Howard then robbed Andreas Johnsson with a desperation glove save off the rush before the Red Wings went in front when Bertuzzi tipped home his third at 9:37.Nielsen nearly made it 3-1 a couple minutes later, but Andersen was there to make the stop from in tight.Despite being outshot 17-4 in the period to that point, the Leafs tied it at 14:19 when Brown scored his 14th – and first in 15 games – on a tip off the post and in past Howard.Detroit survived a 36-second 5-on-3 power play by Toronto midway through the first, but the Leafs eventually took the lead with 5:30 remaining in the period. Tyler Bozak fished out a loose puck in front before firing a no-look pass to Kapanen, who scored his seventh, and third in the last seven games.”Resilient teams find a way,” Kadri said. ”That’s definitely what we did tonight.”NOTES: Toronto’s James van Riemsdyk assisted on Kapanen’s goal to give him 11 points in his last six games with eight goals and three assists. … Matthews, who returned to the lineup Thursday and was playing at home for the first time since suffering a shoulder injury Feb. 22, had a great chance in the opening minutes that Howard turned aside. … Matthews missed 10 games before scoring in Toronto’s 5-2 victory in Nashville on Thursday. … The Leafs’ last home loss was Jan. 22 against Colorado.UP NEXTRed Wings: at Montreal on Monday night.Maple Leafs: host Buffalo on Monday night.
