In an appearance on Coach’s Corner with Ron MacLean Wednesday night, Cherry offered high praise for Brent Seabrook.
“I can’t say enough. He hits. He fights, blocks shots,” Cherry said on Hockey Night in Canada. “Why he isn’t considered in the Norris trophy — with all the sweethearts — is beyond me. (He’s) the best defenceman in the league.”...
Cherry also raved about the atmosphere outside of Amalie Arena before Game 1, saying it was a welcome change from the last time the Tampa Bay Lightning appeared in the Stanley Cup Final (2003-04).
"(In 2004), I went out to the parking lot and two or three (fans) would walk in," Cherry said of the underwhelming crowd in Tampa Bay. "It was dead and now they're waiting outside and going nuts out there."
Cherry, who recently spoke about his appreciation for Lightning forward Alex Killorn, also pointed out the secret behind Killorn's amazing first period tip-in goal.
