Bad blood? No, just bad breath between Subban, Crosby
Exchange between star players results in interesting chirp
Things are getting pretty personal in the Stanley Cup final.
Cameras captured P.K. Subban and Sidney Crosby exchanging words during the end of Game 3 on Saturday night, and viewers were left to wonder what was being said so emphatically.
That is, until an interview following Nashville's 5-1 victory, when Subban elaborated on what he said the discussion was all about.

"He told me my breath smelled," Subban said. "I used some Listerine before the game, so I don't know what he's talking about."
Crosby responded to the exchange on Sunday and claimed that Subban made up the story and that "he's a guy that likes attention."

Crosby added "he's a guy that likes the attention. If he wants to make stuff up, what can I do."—@ShawnMcKenzieSN
While no one is really quite sure what Crosby and Subban actually said to one another, Predators goalie Pekka Rinne confirmed to reporters that his teammate has excellent oral hygiene.
