Larry Brooks absolutely burns P.K. Subban after his take on the controversial Trouba incident; the hilarious roast on social media is now going viral

It’s the hit that everyone interested in hockey is talking about at the moment.

The Rangers held a 3-2 lead with 2:25 remaining in the second period of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals when Jacob Trouba laid a controversial hit on Evan Rodrigues.

It’s not the first time that Trouba tries to use his elbow in hits, but this time, he caught his opponent up high, as Rodrigues skated past him through on goal.

Trouba was initially called on for a major penalty, but after review, he was assessed a minor penalty. Rodrigues remained down on the ice for some time before heading towards the locker room.

Luckily, he returned for the third period, but fans were furious that Trouba got to stay in the game after his hit.

On social media, the vast majority of people think that Trouba crossed the line, and that he certainly was deserved of a major penalty.

P.K. Subban, a former NHLer and now analyst, took out his frustation with a post on X, formerly Twitter.

”How is that not a major on Trouba??” Subban wrote.

But not everyone agreed with him. The New York Post’s veteran hockey journalist Larry Brooks, who was honored by the Hockey Hall of Fame as the 2018 recipient of the Elmer Ferguson Award, instead thought that Evan Ferguson was to blame.

On Twitter, Brooks first wrote, ’You’re telling me this was not embellishment? Give me a break on this,’ while posting a video of the incident.

He also took the time to respond to P.K. Subban with a massive burn.

”I can tell you that it was for a better reason than you were able to avoid being called for majors on your litany of slewfoots.”
