Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban was called for holding late in the second period of Monday’s playoff game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Apparently, both refs missed the blindside punch Subban appeared to throw that caught Avs forward Nathan MacKinnon up high. MacKinnon actually got called for holding as well, resulting in offsetting penalties.

The Avs were up 4-1 at that point of Game 3 of the first-round series. Colorado won, 5-3, as the Preds’ lead in the series was cut to 2-1.

Subban was a minus-1 in the game at the time of the punch, which could be reviewed by the NHL Department of Player Safety. A message left with an NHL spokesperson late Monday night was not immediately returned.

The NHL has already suspended Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri (three games) and Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty (one game) for illegal hits in the first round. Other hits have been reviewed for potential supplemental discipline.
