SHARE NHL analyst Mike Milbury blames Bryan Bickell for overtime loss

NBC analyst Mike Milbury said Bryan Bickell’s shot attempt that led to an Anaheim Ducks’ two-on-one fast break in overtime was “boneheaded” and cost the Blackhawks Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

This is on Bryan Bickell, who hasn’t had a good playoffs, Milbury said. He slams it into the legs of the Ducks’ defender, what are you doing?

After Bickell’s shot was blocked, Ducks center Ryan Kesler started the two-on-one fast break with left wing Matt Beleskey, and Kesler shot it off Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford’s pads and Beleskey scored the game-winner off the rebound.

No excuses, take all the responsibility, Bryan Bickell, it was all your fault, Milbury said.

The Blackhawks will head back to Chicago for Game 6 and are on the brink of elimination.
