Alex Ovechkin broke another record with his hat trick against the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night. During a segment on NBC Sports afterward, Mike Milbury said he thinks Ovechkin “is the best goal scorer that ever laced on a pair of skates.”
Mike Milbury actually said that. Yes, that Mike Milbury.
The same guy who “just doesn’t like Russians.” The same guy who had the Blue Jackets winning the 2018 Stanley Cup. The same guy who said Ovechkin was “just a one-dimensional player” because all he does is score goals.
The video of the segment, the transcript of Milbury’s Ovechkin comments, and sweet sweet long-overdue justice are below.
