CAN'T GET ENOUGH

Analyst's odd words to describe Crosby, Malkin

Analysts of any sport are paid to use intelligent words when describing the games, players, coaches, etc.  NBC Sports Network’s Mike Milbury shouldn’t get paid much.  During Wednesday’s Flyers/Penguins game while describing how Penguins’ studs Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin can’t get enough of scoring goals and making plays on offense, he used a term that doesn’t fit...

Evgeni Malkin injured after slamming into the boards

Before the discussion even comes up, lets make it clear that this was not a dirty hit by Florida Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson.  It was a completely legal hit, and this was just a casualty of both players being very big, skating very fast and being close to the boards.
