Listerine, likely amused and loving the publicity, jumped into the fray with a tweet to Subban before the game.
We don't know who is going to win, but we do know @PKSubban1 breath is going to be on point for game 4.— Listerine US (@Listerine) June 5, 2017
Bad breath became a trending topic in the series, when Subban described the nature of the conversation at the end of Game 3 between star players in an on-ice interview with NBC Sports Network after the game.
"He told me my breath smelled, but I don't know. I used some Listerine before the game, so I don't know what he's talking about," Subban said with a grin.
"He made that up. I didn't say that," Crosby said.
"He likes the attention and things like that," Crosby continued. "If he wants to make stuff up, what can you do?"
The series is tied 2-2 and Game 5 comes back to Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
