The Pittsburgh Penguins lost to the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night 6-5 and it was a wild game, as it usually is when these two teams get together.

The craziness wasn't just limited to the ice, however, as NBC analyst Mike Milbury, who is never afraid to say what he wants, compared Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to crack addicts during the first intermission due to their love of offense and scoring goals.

"They've got Malkin and Crosby," said Milbury. "They're like crack addicts. They can't get enough of this offensive stuff, they want to go coast-to-coast and score a bunch of goals but it can lead to some trouble."

So that happened.

Crosby and Malkin get compared to a lot of things, but this might be a first.
