Kendall Coyne is serving as an NBCSN analyst on Wednesday night for a Penguins-Lightning game. Coyne — a forward for the Team USA women’s hockey team — won a gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics, and is a five-time IIHF world champion. And she recently became the first woman to compete in the NHL All-Star Skills Competition.

It’s safe to say that Coyne really, really knows hockey.

So that made this condescending crap from NBCSN’s Pierre McGuire particularly uncomfortable — and obviously unnecessary — during Wednesday night’s broadcast:

“Tampa’s gonna be on your left, Pittsburgh’s gonna be on your right. What are you expecting out of this game? We’re paying you to be an analyst, not to be a fan tonight!”

Ridiculous. Thanks for mansplaining the very basics of the game to Coyne like she’s a four-year-old (and not a gold medalist hockey star), Pierre.
