Mike Milbury called Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin ‘crack addicts’

NBC's Mike Milbury is no stranger to controversial comments. In fact, viewers have become so accustomed to his antics that it takes something pretty special to break through and stir things up. As if he was aware of this fact, Milbury described Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin as "crack addicts" when referring to their play in the offensive zone. 

Probably not the best analogy there, Mike. We're not sure how exactly two hockey players that enjoy lighting the lamp for their team has anything to do with a serious drug addiction. We get it – they're "addicted" to offense. Why not just say that?

The analogy here was just another awkward joke (a failed joke, at that) that you can add to the growing library of illogical Milbury sound bites
