Things are getting pretty personal in the Stanley Cup final.
Subban was seen getting in Crosby's face after the Predators thrashed Pittsburgh 5-1 on Saturday to get their first win of the series.
Likely adding to Subban's confidence is the fact Bridgestone Arena, considered by many as the NHL's loudest arena, will be rocking for the first Cup Final game in franchise history.
NBC's Pierre Mcguire asked Subban about the exchange, who said the chirp was about his bad breath. "I didn't say that", Crosby told reporters, one day after Subban said Crosby responded to Subban approaching the Penguins captain from behind and throwing a quick jab at him at a close distance about his breath. They blocked some. I think it's just a matter of winning those battles too and finding ways to get to the net. "There's no question. We're going to win the next game and then we'll move forward". They are 8-1 at home this postseason, and Subban made it clear he expects Nashville fans to find a way to crank the volume up even higher Monday night. "We know that, and we're going to have to continue to be strong defensively to have success against this hockey club".
