P.K. Subban, he of the Game 3 guarantee, was of course in the middle of it all. After the final whistle, Subban exchanged words with Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and Pittsburgh forward Jake Guentzel.
NBCSN and Pierre McGuire asked Subban about the comments he made to Crosby and gave us the gem of the Stanley Cup Final:
Here’s what Subban had to say.
"[Crosby] told me my breath smelled, but I don't know, I used some Listerine before the game so I don’t know what he’s talking about."
Subban clarified his comments later in a postgame scrum, via Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy.
Pekka Rinne also jumped in on Subban’s breath situation, which will likely please our dentist readers.
P.K.Subban's breath is apparently a topic of conversation. Pekka Rinne says: "He's a classy guy. He always flosses."— Stephen Whyno (@SWhyno) June 4, 2017
Honestly, how can you not love Subban? What a quote and what a gem.
