Brendan Gallagher may have shed a little more light on some old friction between P.K. Subban and the Montreal Canadiens.

With Subban and the Nashville Predators in town Saturday to take on the Canadiens - his second game at the Bell Centre since being traded in a June 2016 blockbuster - the blue-liner had a quiet night, as he was held pointless and picked up a minus-one rating. However, a shootout goal by Ryan Ellis was enough to seal the 3-2 victory for the Predators.

While Subban wasn't a factor, his return seemingly irked at least one member of the Canadiens.

"I don't know why you're asking about him," Gallagher told Eric Engels of Sportsnet postgame. "I think he was - you know, they got a lot of good players. I don't know, what was he? Minus-1 in the game? They have a lot of other reasons why we lost tonight. They're a good team.

"He was talking, doing what he does. But, like I said, I don't know why we're talking about him. That's kind of what he wants. He came in here and tried to make it about P.K. Subban, which is what he does ... You can let him talk about himself all night."

Just as Gallagher predicted, Subban had something to say postgame, too.

"I didn't see a smile from (Gallagher) tonight, to be honest with you," Subban told Engels. "I just saw the blood dripping down his face when he tried to hit me and fell down."

The Predators took both contests against the Canadiens this season, with both wins coming in the shootout.
