It turns out Ray Emery’s pop singer girlfriend is a fan of fighting too.

Keshia Chante, the Canadian voice behind three pop albums and (I guess) a host (?) on The Next Star, whatever that is,  who has also been dating Emery for years, clearly didn’t like Senators goalie Robin Lehner’s comments about Emery’s recent on-ice beat-down of Washington counterpart Braden Holtby.

Lehner, who has never shied away from physical confrontation on the ice, had this to say Tuesday:

“I think it’s a great call, I think (a suspension) is a good decision. It’s one thing, stepping up and man to man fight. That’s what a lot of players do (if) both players want to fight and both drop (the gloves). Somebody makes a hit and they want them to kind of stand up for what they did.

“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. He got his glove off to protect himself.”

Chante fired back on Twitter Wednesday, and Lehner responded.

After posting several more Tweets and then deleting them, Chante wound up apologizing to the Senators’ netminder.
