WILMINGTON, Mass. Its pretty clear David Krejci doesnt like Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban after the Habs rookie drew a hooking call on the Bs center in last nights first period that would have been judged as a 10.0 by the Russian judges at the Olympics.The Bruins received a quick make-up call when Montreal scrapper Ryan White was called for a roughing penalty on Andrew Ference in the corner, but that still didnt stop Krejci from speaking his Czech Republic mind after the game.He wont be getting together for any dinners with Subban this summer, and its the start of some necessary hard feelings between the Bruins and Canadiens as the series moves along.Im not going to say what I think about him," Krejci said. "But I dont like him. He didnt have to go down that easily. It was a call. I dont think it was a bad call or a good call. It was just a call that was made, but if he made the call thats fine with me but hes got to make the call on the other side. That happened to me, so thats what Im kind of mad about.We knew there was going to be some bad calls or some missed calls. Were all human. Us as players, we make mistakes on the ice and the refs do too. It is what it is. Youve just got to fight through it.One quick addition to Krejcis thoughts: Itll be much more meaningful if he and the rest of the Bruins actually start showing on the ice how much they dont like Subban and the rest of the Canadiens.
