Grapes talks Brandon Dubinsky vs. Sidney Crosby

Playoff time seems to mean it's open season on the NHL's star players, according to Don Cherry.

The candid Coach’s Corner commentator used his Hockey Night in Canada segment on Saturday night to highlight the work done by Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky getting in the face of Penguins captain Sidney Crosby.

Cherry also talked about Game 2 of the Blues-Blackhawks series, saying Chicago "gave away" the win on Saturday in St. Louis, and criticized the play of Hawks defenceman Duncan Keith.
