Mike Milbury tells Alex Ovechkin to 'act like a man' during rant
Mike Milbury wants Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin to 'act like a man.'
During his intermission segment with Liam McHugh and Keith Jones on NBC Sports Network, Milbury let loose on Ovechkin for his performance through the first two periods in the Caps' 4-1 loss. In typical Milbury fashion, he did not hold back.
He criticized Ovechkin's effort, overall performance and embellishment of a stick near the head, telling him to "act like a man for God's sake," and screaming about how 8-year-olds don't make the type of plays Ovechkin made in the offensive zone. He was also annoyed that Ovechkin made a line change during a Flyers goal.
Frankly, the entire Capitals team was a mess on Wednesday night, taking a couple of steps backward after their big win over Carolina on Monday. And that has pretty much been the story of their season to this point.
