HE WENT THERE
Don Cherry said he didn't think women should not be allowed in the locker room in response to an incident from the week.
Don Cherry was back at it on Saturday, addressing the recent Duncan Keith situation and sharing his thoughts that female reporters don't belong in a male locker room.

CBC host Ron MacLean’s opening for Game Six between the Rangers and Capitals failed miserably tonight. He mentioned that New York City and Washington were the two targets for September 11, 2001 and should have stopped there.
