A Flyers-Penguins line brawl on April Fools Day 2012 left Mad Mike in peak form. During an interview on a Philadelphia radio show, he accused Penguins coach Dan Bylsma of wearing a skirt and called Sidney Crosby a "punk" and "Goody Two Shoes." He also mocked Crosby's "35th concussion." Milbury later apologized, saying, "I reached out to (Pittsburgh president) David Morehouse and the Penguins about the comments I made yesterday on Philadelphia radio. In hindsight, I realize what I said was inappropriate and wrong, and I want to apologize to the Penguins organization and their fans." He did not apologize to Crosby or Bylsma, though.
