Things have escalated between Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby and Nashville Predators favorite P.K. Subban in an agitated saga that began with alleged comments about bad breath.
Toward the end of first period of Thursday night’s Stanley Cup Final Game 5, the two premier talents got caught up behind the net, and Crosby continued to pound Subban’s face into the ice about two feet away from an onlooking referee.
Subban and Crosby received matching minor penalties following the altercation.
The Penguins went on to win 6-0 to take a 3-2 series lead.
