What Mr. Cam Charron failed to mention is that the Habs were outshot significantly during 5 on 5 play.........even while Subban was on the ice.

Mr. Charron fails to mention that we closed the gap on shots during the PP when Subban was indeed on the ice.

Its better to watch the game to understand what's happening as opposed to simply pulling up stats and then create a story.
As someone mentioned, those are 5 on 5 numbers. When PK was on the ice 5 on 5 we outshot the lighting by 6 and when we was off the ice we were outshot by 21 shots. Spin that any way you want, but on a purely objective level that is just absurd.

On the other hand, Therrien seemed to match up the Markov-Subban pairing with the EGG line quite a bit, which is likely why the numbers are that high. They seemed to be the only line to generate sustained pressure.
