It was probably bad enough that NBC analyst Mike Milbury referred to the Washington Capitals during Sunday's telecast as the "Crapitals." But what he said about Alexander Ovechkin could unleash the beast that lurks within the Russian sniper tonight in Game 3 at the Wachovia Center.
Speaking about the Capitals' effort in the 2-0 Flyers victory, Milbury said of Ovechkin's play, "If it looks like a dog, barks like a dog, it is a dog."
According to fellow analyst Pierre McGuire, whose verbal sparring with Milbury has been nothing short of classic theater during recent games, Milbury apologized to Capitals owner Ted Leonsis for the "Crapitals" remark.
