ďThe frustrating part is that you end up with 17 minutes in the penalty box when you should have been on the power play.

Right now, theyíve got over 100 power plays so far and itís pretty obvious why. Weíre trying to clean that out of our game and itís got to be done soon.

ďItís not about tonight. Itís about the game and the embellishment embarrasses our game, and we need to be better at that because it was pretty obvious when P.K. [Subban] gets hit, he throws himself into the glass and holds his head. You know what? If we start calling those penalties for embellishment, maybe teams will stop doing it, but until we take charge of that, itís going to be an issue.Ē

Right on Claude.

100 Percent agree with him on the 17 minute which should technically have just been a 2 minute power play and that would have been the end of it. As for the embellishments though, we can't really talk. EVERY team has guys that do it. We are not void of that. Then again, those scoundrels up in MTL do it more than most, and they always have
