Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are two of the most aggressive offensive players in the NHL, and NBC Sports analyst Mike Milbury found a new way to describe that offensive hunger on Wednesday night.
The outspoken analyst has a unique way of giving hot hockey takes, and Wednesday night was no different, as Milbury used what’s usually looked at as an insult to describe the Pittsburgh Penguins’ duo.
Milbury labeled Crosby and Malkin “crack addicts” when talking about their offensive tendencies, while adding that type of “hunger” is what sometimes opens the Penguins up to some defensive lapses. Milbury made the comments during the second intermission of the Penguins-Flyers game, which Philadelphia won 6-5 with a goal late in the third period.
