OTTAWA - Ray Emery isn't the only one willing to drop the gloves in his household.

Ottawa-born singer Keshia Chante, Emery's longtime girlfriend, wasn't happy with comments by Senators goalie Robin Lehner that the Philly netminder should have been charged with "assault" for his attack on Washington's Braden Holtby.

"I can't be down 7-0 and decide I'll take a guy that can't defend himself and pound him, I don't think," said Lehner. "I think I should get suspended if I do it. It's assault -- isn't it?

"Maybe it's not my business, but watching what happened to Holtby is disgusting. He didn't want to (fight). He wasn't capable of it, but (Emery) pounded him and he kept pounding him and (Holtby) didn't want to."

So Chante, 24, a judge on YTV's singing competition The Next Star, took to her twitter account Wednesday to express her displeasure with comments by Lehner.
