Leafs Still Don't Stick up for Each Other Physically

Recommended Posts

In recent games I've seen several instances where a Toronto player got nailed, and there was no response from anyone in a blue and white sweater.  On one play, Tavares got checked hard into the net after a play stoppage and Matthews (who was right there when it happened) just skated past the opposing player and did nothing.


Then the other night Thornton got speared/slashed along the boards from Ehlers and there was no response by Kerfoot (who was right there). 


This doesn't bode well for the Leafs in the playoffs. A team that won't stand up for each other is the kind of team that will get rolled over when it matters most.

I have a feeling the leafs could go deep this year...


The North division is certainly there for the taking, but a wake up call is coming in the "conference" final unless this team starts to play a more physical game, especially when they start playing a US team with fans in the building.


If someone mows down one of your top players there has to be some pushback.  😐
