“I just thought we got exposed today for being a team that was just soft, soft and purposeless, and just kind of playing the game and hoping it was going to work out.” – Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe after his team blew another 3-1 lead and lost 6-3 to the New York Rangers.
Speaking of the Leafs, they and the Ottawa Senators can’t have more than 500 fans at home games until Jan. 31.
The #Sens will be allowed 500 fans of Jan. 31st, 50% capacity on Feb. 21 and full capacity March 14. They will play 11 home games between now and Feb. 21. 500 people means essentially no fans. https://t.co/oVVzolkhrQ
