Mike Milbury calls Matt Cooke 'a skunk'

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

Milbury ranted about Cooke in light of Erik Karlsson's injury.

As you may know, tonight is the first time Pittsburgh and Ottawa have met since Matt Cooke inadvertently sliced Erik Karlsson's Achilles tendon a few months ago. Everyone not named Eugene Melnyk agrees that the injury wasn't intentional. But that didn't stop Mike Milbury from unleashing his anger.

Milbury took the opportunity to remind everyone that he thinks Cooke is a really dirty player. And by dirty, he apparently means he smells really bad. He described Cooke as "putrid" and even called him a "skunk."

So while Cooke has cleaned up his game, Milbury apparently thinks he hasn't cleaned himself up. Or something.
