Nathan MacKinnon’s amusing warning to Sidney Crosby

Nathan MacKinnon is now a Stanley Cup champion for the first time in his career, and as he and the Colorado Avalanche prepare for their celebrations, he wants his good friend Sidney Crosby to be ready.

As MacKinnon told reporters after their incredible Game 6 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday, he’s always been the “drunkest” guy at Crosby’s cup parties. Now that he’s as much a champion as the Pittsburgh Penguins star, Crosby has to pay it back with interest.

“I was the drunkest guy at (Crosby’s) cup parties, so he better be drunk at mine,” MacKinnon said per Ian McLaren from Locked on Bruins.

Sidney Crosby was one of the first players to react to the Avalanche’s victory and even paid tribute to Nathan MacKinnon, knowing how hard the Avs star worked and how badly he wanted it.

We’re pretty sure Crosby won’t have any problem being the “drunkest guy” this time around when MacKinnon throws his championship parties. In fact, it could be the new champion who needs to prepare to let the booze flow. After all, it’s his first ring and the Avs haven’t won the title since 2001 — that’s more than 20 years of waiting rolled into one.

It’s definitely nice to see the Avalanche win and celebrate. After a dominant run that ended them with an historic 16-4 postseason record, they deserve all the fun they can get.
