Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins are two of the best offensive players in the world. They love to score goals. One might say they’re addicted to thriving in the offensive end.
That’s sort of what Mike Milbury of NBC Sports Network was getting at about the duo during the Penguins’ game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night. Only he was a bit more … specific.
For the video impaired:
“The big guys, Malkin and Crosby. They’re like crack addicts. They can’t get enough of this offensive stuff. They want to go coast to coast and score goals, but it leads to some trouble.”
Like waking up in a flop house or burning their fingers on a makeshift pipe or skeletal weight loss or …
Please don’t file this in the same category as Milbury’s idiotic “Thelma and Louise” comment about the Sedins or his “Eurotrash” comments about foreign-born players. It’s a odd little joke in an awkward venue; and frankly, we’ve called many a general manager a crackhead for being unable to stay away from handing out elephantine contracts.
