Grass is green, the sky is blue, and Pittsburgh Penguins fans are complaining about the NBC coverage of their team. NBC has apparently done two different things to piss off Pens fans today. One is the completely biased lashing that "analyst" (And I use that term lightly) Mike Milbury gave the Penguins. The other was lifelong and infamous Penguins' fan, Cy Clark, aka...
Mike Milbury tends to inspire a wide range of feelings to viewers of the NHL on NBC. Many of them are not necessarily positive. Anytime I mention the man known as “Mad Mike” on Twitter, I’m bound to see a bunch of angry responses, usually based on Milbury’s tenure as an NHL general manager.
One such dissenter is NHL enforcer and Twitter maven Paul Bissonette, whom many of...
If you haven't seen it, good stuff here. I think both Mike Milbury and Paul Bissonnette have a point Knowing Mike Milbury has a job talking hockey makes me feel good about life after I'm done playing. Guy's a zero.— Paul Bissonnette (@BizNasty2point0) March 31, 2014
Phoenix Coyote Paul Bissonnette might be more well known for his Twitter posts than his rather limited time on the ice. Bissonnette’s latest charade on social media came when he issued the below statement on former Bruins defenseman and current broadcaster Mike Milbury.

After a controversial hit by Brooks Orpik left Jonathan Toews injured with a shoulder injury, Mike Milbury went on a rant about the Penguins defenseman on NBCSN. Never one to hold his tongue on hot-button issues, Milbury took a strong stance against Orpik and basically insinuated that the Blackhawks should target him in the third period.
Also never one to hold his tongue, Paul Bissonnette...
Here’s a shocker, Mike Milbury complaining about something. His target on Sunday night: Brooks Orpik.
Orpik hit Jonathan Toews hard in the Penguins zone, knocking the Hawks captain out. Mike Milbury had this to say:
Milbury says, “Orpik tries to hit people when they are vulernable, HE TRIES TO HURT PEOPLE.”
Trying to make sense of Milbury is always tough. He rambles through...
It is safe to say that Brooks Orpik's hit on Chicago Blackhawks' center, Jonathan Toews, will be talked about until your ears bleed for the next week or so. Of course, the NHL won't be able to celebrate anything positive, instead the NHL will have the likes of old-time hockey talking heads discussing whether or not Orpik's hit on Towes was illegal or not. Talking...

The Bruins-Rangers’ rivalry was a nasty one way back when and fans are hoping that the 2013 Eastern Conference semifinals will bring back some of that nastiness the teams displayed throughout the early and mid-1900s.
The two Original Six have met before in the playoffs — notably when Boston topped New York for the Stanley Cup in both 1929 and 1972 — but they haven’t squared...
