NBC Sports Network analysts Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick got into a heated debate on Wednesday night as they discussed whether Eric Nystrom of the Dallas Stars should be suspended for his hit on Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang.
Milbury argued that Nystrom should be suspended at least five games for the first-period collision, which ultimately knocked Letang out of the contest. The blue-liner had missed 21 games earlier in the season with a concussion.
For his part, Roenick argued that while he loves Letang as a player, he put himself in a vulernable position by lowering his head.
The conversation became animated quickly - with Milbury even lightly tapping Roenick across the face to accentuate a point.
Roenick responded that Milbury is "getting soft" and should go have a Shirley Temple.
