P.K. Subban went from guaranteeing a win to guaranteeing his breath doesn't stink.
The Predators star defenseman was seen jawing with Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby at the end of Nashville's 5-1 win in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final Saturday.
But what were they saying, exactly?
NBC sideline reporter Pierre McGuire asked Subban what the two All-Stars discussed in their brief postgame interaction.
Subban happily shed a little light on the conversation.
"He told me my breath smelled. But, I mean, I don't know, I used some Listerine before the game so I don't know what he's talking about," Subban said.
Predators goalie Pekka Rinne jumped to Subban's defense.
In the locker room, Subban further resisted the stinky accusation.
"Usually when guys chirp after a game or during a game, it's usually about your game or something personal," Subban told reporters. "But he went on to tell me that my breath smelled. I really don't understand why, because I used Listerine before the game. I thought my breath smelled great. At the end of the day, we're just gonna take the win and move on."
Just steer clear of eating some victory catfish.
