The Toronto Maple Leafs were booed off the ice twice by their fans at Scotiabank Arena last night, falling to the lowly Arizona Coyotes by a 4-2 final score. Of course, the game wasn't without controversy, as the would-be tying goal from Alex Kerfoot was washed out due to defenseman Morgan Rielly being whistled for a hand pass.
And afterward, the Coyotes social media team decided to have a bit of fun at Toronto's expense. They reminded the Leafs that their streak of earning at least a point while playing in Toronto remains intact after 20 years:
Man, it's pretty rough for a team like the Leafs to get trolled on social media by a team that will be playing in a 5,000 seat college rink for the foreseeable future. And head coach Sheldon Keefe certainly was in no mood for fun last night following the setback.
“Our best people have not found a rhythm,” Keefe said in response to the loss. “The difference between us and Arizona is that we have elite players. Our elite players didn’t play like elite players today and couldn’t make a difference.”
The Leafs will have the chance to get back on the winning side tomorrow night when they host the Dallas Stars.
