P.K. Subban is having an outsanding postseason, so outstanding that the hockey gods are rewarding him when something doesn't go his way.

Subban was called for a penalty in the first period with the Canadiens leading the Bruins 1-0 in Game 3 on Tuesday. He lined up Reilly Smith right in front of the benches and appeared to lay a good, hard hit on Reilly that also caught his teammate Thomas Vanek.

Still, Subban was called for a penalty on the play and he wasn't happy about it, neither were the fans in Montreal. Here's a look at the hit via @PeteBlackburn.

So how did the hockey gods make it up to Subban? By him breaking out of the penalty box at the exact right moment.

Subban was fed a pass up the ice from Lars Eller and he was off, behind the Bruins defense with a clean breakaway on Tuukka Rask. Considering how the electrifying defenseman is playing right now, of course he deked Rask out of his gear and scored.

The penalty-box breakout has been a pretty common sight this postseason for whatever reason. It seems like every night there's another player getting out of the box and being sprung for a breakaway, Subban was the latest in that trend.

It was Subban's second point of the first period, he got the secondary assist on Tomas Plekanec's goal that started the scoring a few minutes earlier. After the goal he now has 11 points -- 11! -- in six games and one period so far this postseason.

Here's a friendly reminder to Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin that Subban is in need of a new contract this summer and oh boy is it going to cost them.
