Caps ‘jerk’ Evgeny Kuznetsov kindly suggests that curmudgeon Don Cherry ‘shut his mouth’

  • On Saturday, Cherry took aim at Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov for daring to do his signature celebration, “The Bird,” after he scored the game-tying goal in the final minute of regulation last week against the Lightning. Washington would lose in overtime.

“Watch the jerk here now after he scores a goal, this a very important game right here,” 

Don Cherry
  • Cherry’s comments made their way to Kuznetsov, who has 20 goals this season.

“If he want to say something, he can call me or he can meet me, but to call me jerk on TV doesn’t make him look good, you know?” the Capitals forward said Tuesday. “But whatever he said, my parents teach me a lot of good things when I’m young, and I’m not going to say anything bad about a guy who’s much older than me.”

  • Kuznetsov, who said his young daughter loves his goal celebration, brushed off the Blue Jackets’ mockery.
  • Now, Cherry and everybody in Canada should follow along.
