The Kings are going to the Stanley Cup. That's about the only thing Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick could agree on Tuesday night.
The two NBC Sports Network analysts — and former NHL players — were at each other's throats again following Los Angeles' overtime victory over Phoenix in Game 5. They couldn't seem to agree on exactly what transpired moments before the series-clinching goal, when Dustin Brown delivered a controversial hit on Michal Rozsival that led to the Coyotes defenseman being helped off the ice.
Milbury took Brown's reputation as a gritty, on-the-edge type of player into account, and said he felt the hit was dished out after the whistle and should therefore have been avoided. Roenick, meanwhile, felt as though the hit was perfectly legal, and that it was physically impossible for Brown to avoid such contact.
What happens when you mix those two viewpoints together? Entertainment, my friends.
