OTTAWA - P.K. Subban's celebration left a sour taste in the Senators' mouths.

Less than 24 hours after the Montreal Canadiens defenceman scored his OT winner at the Canadian Tire Centre Thursday, the Senators weren't exactly sure what Subban was so excited about.

Yes, Subban helped give the club a 5-4 victory by beating goaltender Craig Anderson five-hole, but some in the Ottawa room were less than thrilled with Subban leaping and skating to centre ice pulling on the crest.

Asked if what Subban did was "unnecessary" Anderson didn't disagree.

"The key word there is unnecessary," said Anderson Friday after practice. "You didn't see us, when (Clarke MacArthur) scored our overtime goal (on Jan. 4 in Montreal), throwing our jersey up in the air like that. It's one of those things where, that's his character, that's the way he is, we all know that.

"It should make us all angry here that we don't want that to happen again so we've got to win the games."
