Canadian NHL commentator Don Cherry ins't new to flaunting overly-flamboyant suits during his 37-year commentary career.

However, the 83-year-old has caused somewhat of an online stir over the weekend by donning a blood-splattered jacket during the clash between Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers in Game 6 of the first round Stanley Cup play-offs.

Twitter, as per usual, was quick to react to Cherry's choice of attire.

The Rangers went on to beat the Canadiens 3-1 and qualified for the second round of play-offs after winning the first round series 4-2.


They will meet the Ottawa Senators in the second round of the Eastern Conference play-offs, with the remaining play-offs schedule yet to be announced.
