Maple Leafs blaming loss on this one ''uncalled penalty''

The Toronto Maple Leafs had a golden opportunity to exercise their demons last night vs the Tampa Bay Lightning. Being up 3-2 in the series a win here would have sent the Lightning packing and the Leafs moving onto the 2nd round.

After a poor start yet again the Lightning would build up a 2-0 lead, but the Leafs would have a great second period scoring 3 goals to take a one goal lead to the third period.

After getting in some penalty trouble giving the Lightning a two man advantage, Nikita Kucherov would tie it up 3-3 forcing overtime. Brayden Point 18:04 into Overtime would score the game winning goal, forcing game 7.

However the Leafs were furious they didn't get a power play in overtime when Alex Killorn would grab onto Auston Matthews for 10-15 seconds.


Leafs Head Coach Sheldon Keefe was asked about the no call to which he said:

"I got a opinion on it I think you know but I'd rather not say."

Leafs Captain John Tavares also declined to answer on the officials.
