Flyers Assistant Calls Crosby, Malkin Dirty

Flyers assistant coach Craig Berube was interviewed on Daily News Live on CSNPhilly last night and had this to say about Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.
"Let me tell you something, Crosby and Malkin are the two dirtiest players on their hockey team. They slash, they punch guys in the face. They do all these little things-- I got no problem with what Schenn does. And if someone runs [Crosby] over-- that’s great. They should run him over. This guy gets away with too much, in my opinion, whines to the refs all day and all night. It’s a joke. And the guy did something to Schenner a little bit earlier, so he just went at gave him a little shot. It wasn’t like it was a tough, bad cross-check. The guy dove. And I understand all that, they’re going to protect their guy, and they should."

So let's see here: apparently Crosby and Malkin slash and punch players in the face.  In my years of watching the game of hockey, I believe all NHL players slash.  Find me one player without a slashing minor. (Anyone? Anyone?)   Mr. Berube also believes that what Brayden Schenn did, by cross-checking Crosby in the back, is perfectly O.K.  Double standard much?  Even though this quote is from practically a no-name, it still adds fuel to the fire.  The Flyers-Penguins first round match-up will be great.

Here is Schenn's cross-check which Berube thinks is just fine:

Here is the man who said "I got no problem"

Grammar is your friend, big guy... 

Also Mr. Berube punched a referee (45 second mark):
