According to TSN, Canadian Olympic gold medalist P.K. Subban of Toronto, Ontario was one of three Montreal Canadiens to record a multi-point game on Tuesday as the Canadiens defeated the Boston Bruins 4-2 in game two of the Atlantic Division final. With the win, the Canadiens now lead the best out of seven series two games to one.

Subban, was joined by Dale Weise and Lars Eller as the three Canadiens to register a goal and an assist for two points. Subban was a +1, scored a goal on his only shot on net passed Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask and was the only Canadien to take a penalty in the entire game-- a roughing penalty in the first period.

Subban's goal came on the breakaway with 5:16 left in the first period from Eller and Weise that put Montreal up 2-0 at the time. Subban also registered an assist on Tomas Plekanec's opening goal at 10:57 of the first period.

Subban, who led the Canadiens with 31 shifts and 27:50 of total ice time in game three of the series, was involved in some controversy at the end of the game however. With the Canadiens leading 3-2 in the dying moments of the contest, Subban knocked the net off, but a penalty was not called because in the opinion of the referee, it was not considered deliberate.

Subban continues to have an excellent Stanley Cup playoff. He leads the Canadiens with eight assists and 11 points. Subban is also trying to win the Stanley Cup and Olympic gold medal in the same season. He won the gold medal with Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi and is now only ten playoff wins away from winning the Stanley Cup too.

Meanwhile, Subban's Canadian Olympic teammate Carey Price made 26 saves in the victory. Game four of the Atlantic Division final will take place on Thursday in Montreal.

In the Central Division final, the Minnesota Wild defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 4-0 in game three. Former Edmonton Oiler Ilya Bryzgalov made 19 saves for the shutout, while Mikael Granlund scored twice. Chicago still leads the series 2-1 with game four on Friday.
