Lindsey Vonn got the last laugh at Gritty, and NJ Devil got another big win against a division rival, and they both can thank P.K. Subban.

Subban dressed up as the New Jersey Devils mascot at the team's Halloween party, which enabled his fiancee to clap back at Gritty on Monday.

Gritty shot his shot, holding a sign that said "Lindsey can do better" with arrows pointed at himself during warmups before the Flyers home game against the New Jersey Devils on Oct. 9.

The Devils mascot, who pied Jimmy Fallon on TV  to settle a bet last Sunday, also helped Subban exact some payback the Devils' holiday gathering. Subban sported the NJ Devil costume, with a T-shirt that said "Where is Subbanator" while Vonn held a sign that said "Gritty, you're right. I CAN do better."

We'll see if Gritty, who dressed up as Wonder Gritty over the weekend, has a response.
