"There’s been a lot said about a lot of things, but let me say something: If the score [had] been 1-1, I would have said 'Hey, what a goal!’ But I want you people out there to think about this: I want you think if Martin Biron was your son or your brother in an 8-2 [game], and everybody's laughing at him. "I’m going to say something about the kid. He didn’t think he did anything wrong. He played in the Czech Republic last year. This is what they do. You can see him laughing at it. He didn't understand. And kids, you don't do that."In reference to MacArthur's dazzling assist, Cherry had the following to say:
"Look at the score, look at the score, look at the score--1-0. And you said 'Well you praise him and you didn't do it with Hertl.' It was 8-0. What a play that was."
