History tells us nothing physical is going to happen between Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and Flyers Captain Mike Richards tonight in Philadelphia.

Richards started all of the talk in the dressing room following a 3-0 loss at the Bell Centre, blasting Subban’s on-ice demeanor for being “disrespectful”. Richards bluntly stated that “someone” is going to make Subban pay.

Tuesday night at the Bell Centre we got another taste of Broad Street hockey. With the Canadiens intimidating the Flyer with speed and skill, the Flyers sent headhunter Darroll Powe out. He hammered Josh Gorges with an elbow in the second period and then took Jeff Halpern right out of the game with a blindside hit. When it still didn’t work, they went to the verbal threats in the post game dressing room. Their captain Mike Richards went after P.K. Subban of all people. Richards, in an interview with The Team 990, complained that Subban didn’t give him any “respect”, a comment that might have raised the eyebrows of a few in the African-American community.

The Canadiens were lucky in the injury department through the first month of the season. Then Andrei Markov messed up his knee in game seventeen. Canadiens officials seem willing to go as far as terming the injury “long term”. “How long term?’ is the only remaining question.

The Canadiens got additional scares in last night’s 3-0 win over Philadelphia when both Josh Gorges and Jeff Halpern were shaken up during a headhunting mission by the Flyers Darroll Powe in the game’s second and third period. Neither took part in today’s practice, but the two are expected to play tomorrow night against Nashville
