Toronto Maple Leafs called out by Toronto Sun for choking
The Toronto Maple Leafs completed the biggest choke job in the history of the third period of Game 7 Stanley Cup Playoff hockey. Yes, the Leafs blew a 4-1 lead in the third, gave up two goals in 31 seconds, and lost to the Boston Bruins 5-4 in overtime to lose Game 7 of their Eastern Conference series on Monday night.
The local paper, the Toronto Sun decided to put the joke err choke on them. It was rightfully deserved.
Hey, Leafs fans, it’s not as if we haven’t been there before; the Bruins blew a 3-0 series lead to the Flyers in 2010. Happens to the best of us.
