Don Cherry dekes, dangles and sprints past spears on Coach’s Corner

The CBC's Don Cherry had a very selective memory on Saturday evening. He lamented Brandon Dubinsky's ability to attack Sidney Crosby at will in Game 1 of the Penguins-Blue Jackets series, he mocked Duncan Keith for jabbing at the Blues' stars--suggesting that Keith "got Seabrook pumped up" (before sidestepping that topic)--he reviewed the Blues' game-winning goal against Chicago, lamenting Patrick Kane not blocking a shot, he very briefly praised Pavel Datsyuk's game-winner and suggested that the Wings are the worst team for the Bruins to play as their lack of retaliation prevents the Bruins from playing their game (no Loosick mention on Saturday), and then he praised Corey Perry scoring against Dallas and Ryan Getzlaf's persistence (no spear there, either).

Typical of Don. I do enjoy CC for the most part but he has a bias against the Wings because they are “soft” Swedes. Mostly.

I noticed that he omitted that little piece of chicken shit work by his Bruins goons.

Newfie, you are correct. But to be fair, MacLean brought it up during the OT and Cherry didn’t even try to stick up for Lucic.

I like how Don blamed Kane for the OT goal, all while his hero Toews was looking like a ballerina as he got on his tip-toes to ‘block’ the shot from the point
