Subban and the Predators got the last laugh, winning 4-1 at the Pepsi Center in Denver.
P.K. Subban wasn't looking for a fight against Avalanche defender Nikita Zadorov in the Predators' 4-1 win on Wednesday night, but he did have some harsh words during a stop in the action.
Subban was caught insluting Zadorov's poor play during a confrontation but added some self-deprecation in the process.
"You know what, I'm a p----, you're right," Subban said. "I wouldn't fight you, but you're a terrible hockey player.
