With Nashville on their way to a 5-1 victory during last night’s Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, P.K. Subban and Sidney Crosby got into it a little—jawing at each other in the closing minutes of the third period before being separated by a referee. About the night’s gameplay, which had seen quick tempers and plenty of penalty minutes on both sides throughout? Nah.

“He told me my breath smelled, but I mean, I don’t know, I used Listerine before the game,” Subban told Pierre McGuire afterwards about his interaction with Crosby. “So I don’t know what he’s talking about.”

Based on literally nothing at all except what I would like to be true here, someone as purely delightful as Subban cannot possibly have bad breath. May he enjoy every dollar of the Listerine endorsement inevitably coming his way.
