  Subban: Crosby said I have bad breath, but I use Listerine Subban: Crosby said I have bad breath, but I use ListerineP.K. Subban revealed after his Nashville Predators won Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final 5-1 that he was the victim of a vicious chirp from Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who accused the defender of having bad breath.

The Penguins winning the Stanley Cup has nothing to do with PK Subban , but that won't stop plenty of people. So neither PK Subban or Shea Weber won a # StanleyCup this year. Now can we please stop talking about the goddamn trade ? #moveon.

The Pittsburgh Penguins woke up this morning as Stanley Cup champions, but somehow, in some people's minds, P.K. Subban was still the story.

At least on Twitter.

Supporters and detractors of the former Habs defenceman duked it out in the aftermath of the Penguins' victory on Sunday night.

One observer was thankful that the Penguins took home the top prize, because it wouldn't mean another round of stories about Subban's merits.

Another was hopeful the end of the season will put an end to the debate. Not sure that's likely.

And for Chez Subban, the Montreal bar renamed in his honour for the playoff run, it was the end of the line.

Sidney Crosby denies mocking P.K. Subban's breath: 'Yeah, he made that up'

Subban's breath: 'Yeah, he made that up'Subban was seen getting in Crosby's face after the Predators thrashed Pittsburgh 5-1 on Saturday to get their first win of the series. When asked what they were jawing about, Subban said Crosby "told me my breath smelled." Kind of weird, but not exactly a big deal.

P.K. Subban and the Nashville Predators are in the Stanley Cup Final, but how good has the defenceman been during this run? He has always been at his best come playoff time , but we’ve seen a very different player this year. It ’s been talked about all year by Sportsnet insiders such as

“ It stings,” said defenceman P.K. Subban , brought over in a trade stunner in the off-season and a foil for Crosby all series. WATCH: Predators players react to losing Stanley cup , call playoff run ‘waste’ of 2 months.

Subban himself had been uncharacteristically quiet — he was not made available to the media — since his joke about having bad breath emerged as a subplot of the series.

Ahead of yesterday's game, reporters stuck it out at Subban's locker room stall in protest, until the team called a meeting and ordered everyone out.

But the Listerine bottles he playfully carried into the arena ahead of Game 4 quickly became a meme.

In one widely shared post, Crosby hoisted the mouthwash in place of the Stanley Cup.

After the game, Subban himself told reporters he's confident his team will make it back to the final soon.

"It stings,'' said Subban, who was shipped out by the Montreal Canadiens for Shea Weber last summer and played a key shutdown role through the Predators' playoff run.

"We've got to embrace the feeling right now and accept it and let it sink in because ultimately that's what's going to put us back here next year and in a position to win a Stanley Cup."

There had been the possibility of Subban bringing the cup back to Montreal and his beloved Children's Hospital if the Predators had won. That will have to wait for now.

Friedman on Drouin trade: Canadiens fans hungry for a local star .
When the Montreal Canadiens acquired Jonathan Drouin on Thursday, it underlined the importance of what a hometown star means in that market, says Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman. Language plays a factor in the province and Drouin, a native of Ste-Agathe, Que., speaks French and English. “It matters,” Friedman said. “In North America, it probably doesn’t matter anywhere as much as it matters in Montreal.”The Canadiens received Drouin from the Tampa Bay Lightning in a deal that sent defence prospect Mikhail Sergachev the other way.
