Montreal Canadiens' head coach Claude Julien made a very controversial call on Saturday night, as his team faced the Ottawa Senators.

Against all odds, Julien decided to bench two of his best forwards, Brendan Gallagher and Charles Hudon, for several minutes during the second period. As a matter of fact, they were among the forwards who had the least ice time last night.

Both fans and journalist didn't really understand what was going on, especially because the Habs desperately needed a goal:

Gallagher played for 12:46 last night, while Nicolas Deslauriers was on the ice for 13:24. How could you keep your best goal scorer on the bench and play your fourth-liners instead? Some believe it is extremely hard to understand.

What do you guys think?
