Sidney Crosby denies mocking PK Subban's breath: 'Yeah, he made that up'

While Subban said following Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final that Crosby told him his breath smelled bad, a hilariously juvenile jab between National Hockey League superstars, Crosby is now claiming the whole story is made up.

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.

When questioned again after the game, Subban stuck with his original answer.

Things are getting a little personal in the Stanley Cup Final.

The defending champs a chance for a sweep Saturday night when the Predators scored five straight goals in a 5-1 rout of the Pens, winning the first Cup Final game in the state of Tennessee.

The Nashville Predators have lost just one playoff game on home ice since last April, so to say they feel comfortable on Broadway is probably an understatement. When asked what they were jawing about, Subban said Crosby "told me my breath smelled". They blocked some. I think it's just a matter of winning those battles too and finding ways to get to the net.

The flight of the catfish at PPG Paints Arena came close to saving Game 1, but no bottom-feeder showed up for Game 2 to slow the Penguins from prevailing over the Predators, 4-1. "We've had tremendous success in our building and we're going to take advantage of it".
