The All Blacks produced their best display of the year to trounce South Africa by a record 57-0 and take a firm grip on the Rugby Championship in Auckland on Saturday.
All Blacks loosehead Kane Hames endured a hard first Test start and was penalised when the Springboks surged through him at an early scrum.
The Springboks often proved architects of their own misfortune in a performance riddled with poor lineouts, missed tackles and dropped passes.
South Africa continued to enjoy plenty of the ball in the second half, but proved toothless going forward and Milner-Skudder punished it with his second after the restart.
The All Blacks were ruthless in their execution of their opportunities to post 50 points for the second successive Test against their traditional foes, with their 57-15 win a year ago in Durban the previous largest margin.
"At the start we were a bit jittery", Hansen told reporters.
The Springboks entered the match unbeaten in six tests this season, confident they had buried a wretched 2016 season in which they won only four of 12 tests. "I don't really know how we were up by so many points".

The All Blacks, in contrast, were down on confidence after a drawn series against the British and Irish Lions and narrow wins in their most recent tests against Australia and Argentina.
The All Blacks were ruthless in identifying space and taking their opportunities throughout the game and had sealed the win by halftime.
"We came in tonight pretty clear about how we wanted to play and what we wanted to achieve and a lot of those things came off", coach Steve Hansen said.
"He's pretty good this morning, so it looks positive", said Hansen.
The loss is the Springboks first for the year.
"If we could have scored a try or a couple of points in the first half it could have been a different thing", Springboks coach Allister Coetzee said.
"We had a good plan and great preparation and the first 20 minutes, we played our best rugby". Ball in hand we felt on top and we dominated collisions and then one pass goes astray and you're under the pulse.
There was still time for the hosts to get their fourth try before the half-time interval and collect their bonus point when Ioane sliced through the South Africa defence before playing in Coles to find Brodie Retallick and stroll in under the posts to lead 31-0.
