The Latest Barkley takes up Bettman’s invite to see hockey

Sidney Crosby #87 of the Pittsburgh Penguins answers questions during Media Day for the 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Final at PPG PAINTS Arena on May 28, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Yes, you read that right.

In Game 3, Subban continued to make headlines, first telling NBC's Pierre McGuire and then reporters afterwards that Sidney Crosby had "chirped" Subban by saying his breath stunk. He sees no need to rethink the Stanley Cup Final's chess match. That's what you love, and that's what you probably miss the most when you're finished playing.

The two-way value of Nashville's defensemen became particularly apparent during Saturday's Game 3, when Malkin and Crosby combined for zero shots on goal and one point while Josi, Ellis, Ekholm and Subban combined for five points and 11 shots.

Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said Crosby and Malkin simply command a lot of attention, and he doesn't want to interfere with their instincts on when to pass or shoot.

Crosby responded in a press conference Sunday that he never said anything like that, and that Subban "likes the attention", adding that "there's not much I can do".

Sid, then, definitely isn't going to like how Subban arrived for Monday's Game 4, toting numerous wholesale-sized bottles of the minty stuff.

Crosby has yet to score a goal in this series, and both he and Malkin were held without a shot Saturday night in the same game for the first time in their distinguished careers.

"I know there'll be a lot more energy, if you can imagine that. which will be pretty awesome", Subban said. "I'm sure they're going to make adjustments". I thought my breath smelled great.

It will be interesting to see if the Penguins, who relied on three balanced lines during last years Stanley Cup run, decide to split up Malkin and Phil Kessel for Game 4 to get away from Nashvilles top-4 defenceman. "The more you do that, the more chances you have of them making a mistake". “Thats the reality of professional sports. "I think the times where you do get the puck and you do get possession, you've got to challenge them and force them to play defense".
