Other Hockey News & Notes

Crosby on the Subban incident, Golden Goal, Johnson’s baseball brawl | Sportsnet
“They had just tied it 2-2 — we had won the first two and that was in Nashville. He had said something to Guentzy (Jake Guentzel) leaving the ice, and I just went to kind of get in the middle and try to break them up. He kind of kept saying stuff, and him and I went at it. Nothing was said even remotely close to that, but then to read that after, it was like, ‘Oh okay, I’m going to have to answer [questions] about this.’ It was more that. And then on top of that, he ended up taking Listerine, carrying a bottle of Listerine into the game or something. What are you going to do.”
