CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Michael Jenkins has done it again.
Wednesday night while reading a transition to an interview with Barry Trotz, the SportsNet Live anchor lost his mind upon realizing the Caps head coach will be working together with Sidney Crosby during the World Cup of Hockey.
Here’s the transcript.
“On Saturday, he leaves for Ottawa where he’ll serve as a coach for Team Canada and Sidney Crosby. What…
“NO! No, no, no, no, no.”

“The Caps coach and the Pens star working together? Jill Sorenson has your disgusting inside access.”
Several months ago, Jenks went viral for “drinking on air” after the Caps were eliminated by the Pittburgh Penguins in the playoffs.
Despite his resistance, Jenkins tossed to an interview that turned out to be fascinating. Barry Trotz spoke with Sorenson about Caps fans who were worried the head coach would be giving the team’s secrets away to their rivals.
“I think it is easy [to put the rivalry aside],” Trotz said to Sorenson. “You have to be all in. You have to share information. You have a common cause. One of the things we say in hockey, it’s one of those pure team sports. Everybody has to be in. It is unacceptable for me to come into Team Canada and Mike Babcock says, you know, ‘We want to make our power play the best or penalty killing the best and I like this about Washington. What do you do?'”
“All I can say to Caps fans, any secrets I give, I get a lot more,” Trotz continued. “I know what Chicago’s doing. I know what Toronto’s doing. I know what Carolina’s doing. I know what Boston’s doing. Those are the five coaches. We dissect those teams anyways. It’s the nuances that you pick up on when you get to ask the questions and see the other coaches. There’s not that many secrets.”
