Which Subban is better?
Most hockey fans are aware of Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and his effervescent personality.

His younger brother, Malcolm, is a bit more reserved.

A reporter asked Malcolm about something P.K. had said, about his brothers -- especially Malcolm -- being better hockey players than him.

Malcolm -- a third brother, Jordan, will join Malcolm with the Belleville Bulls this season -- refused to take the bait.

Until age 12 Malcolm was a defenseman, so there might have been room for comparison at one point, but not now.

"I'm a goalie," Malcolm said, "so it's hard to compare now."

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
