The Toronto Maple Leafs faced off against the New York Rangers at Scotiabank Arena in a highly anticipated game, highlighted by a clash between enforcers Ryan Reaves and Matt Rempe.

While the game was exciting, not everyone left happy, including Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe. Keefe criticized Rangers rookie forward Matt Rempe for a hit on Maple Leafs defenseman Ilya Lyubushkin, which resulted in an injury.



"Comes a long way. Leaves his feet. Hits him in the head. Injury," said Keefe while shrugging his shoulders in obvious frustration.

"Injuring players starting to get up as many as the fights now."


He also supported Reaves' decision to confront Rempe.

"I thought it was good, especially considering the guy knocks one of our guys out of the game," said Keefe.


With no more regular-season matchups scheduled between these teams, any continuation of this rivalry will have to wait for the Stanley Cup playoffs.
