As the finals keep moving forward the hostility between two of the all-time favorite players Sidney Crosby and P.K. Subban is getting more and more serious and deadly. Yesterday we witnessed another physical assault from Pittsburgh Penguins' captain Crosby.
On 8th June 2017, Nashville Predators defenseman P.K Subban was pounded by Crosby while they tangled and fell behind Penguin's net in another Penguin Vs Preditor clash on Stanley Cup Finals.
Yes, the bad breath comments and Listerine bag made things look funny but yesterday we saw players developing Beef on each other. The incident was pretty unexpected and at the same time was shameful, because Crosby himself is a player who has suffered a concussion after a deadly collision.

The whole thing happened in the injury time of the first period, Crosby and Subban were tangled behind the net of the Penguins half and Penguins were leading the game with 2-0. Sidney ended up on top of Subban and we saw him pounding his hand over Subban's helmet over and over again.
"THAT'S ALL F***ING YOU!"

Both sides suffered the holding as both teams got minor penalties. Though Nashville coach Peter Laviolette was furious at the referees as it seemed as if referee Brad Meier was being kind on Crosby because he was there when the horrendous incident happened.
