P.K. Subban arrives for Stanley Cup Final Game 4 with bag of mouthwash

Predators defenseman not taking any chances with oral hygiene @NHLdotcom

P.K. Subban isn't taking any chances with his breath for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Two days after he claimed Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby told him his breath smelled, Subban arrived at Bridgestone Arena with a bag full of mouthwash on Monday.

Tweet from @Sportsnet: #GottaSeeIt: @PKSubban1 arrived at Bridgestone Arena with a bag FULL of mouthwash. Sidney Crosby can breathe easy now.

And Listerine has taken notice.

Tweet from @Listerine: We don���t know who is going to win, but we do know @PKSubban1 breath is going to be on point for game 4.

Subban told NBC's Pierre McGuire that Crosby had criticized his breath during a third-period scrum in Nashville's 5-1 win in Game 3 on Saturday that cut Pittsburgh's lead in the best-of-7 series to 2-1.

"I really don't understand why, because I used Listerine before the game," Subban said. "I thought my breath smelled great."

Crosby denied Subban's claim. But the star defenseman went the extra mile so none of his opponents takes exception to his oral hygiene.
