Mike Millbury Gets Destroyed By An Angry Predators Fan While Live On Air
After losing the Stanley Cup finals in 6 games to the Pittsburgh Penguins in their first ever cup appearance, Nashville Predators fans, who ranked in the bottom third of attendance during the regular season, seemed to be quite distraught with losing on their home ice. As fans funneled out of Bridgestone Arena, one particularly irate fan stayed back to scream obscenities at NBC analyst Mike Milbury during a live broadcast.
The fan was likely picking on Millbury due to his comments about the former James Norris Memorial Trophy winner, PK Subban. Millbury’s vendetta against Subban first started early in the playoffs when he claimed that Subban’s dancing during warm-ups was a team distraction and the work of a ‘clown.’ A public clarification of his comments didn’t stop him from saying that Subban “had it coming” when Sidney Crosby bashed his head into the ice repeatedly as their bodies were tangled near the boards.
The Predators season is over and Mike Millbury will surely enter next season with an asinine personal crusade against another player who doesn’t deserve the vitriol.
