In a recent NHL game between the Ottawa Senators and the Toronto Maple Leafs, a controversial moment unfolded in the final minutes.

Sens forward Ridley Greig took advantage of an empty net, prompting Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly to retaliate with aggressive actions.

Former Bruins Coach Don Cherry supported Rielly's response, emphasizing the importance of respecting unwritten rules in hockey.

"I'm glad Rielly was on and I'm glad he did it. I know there's no rule in the book that says, 'Don't do that' but you just don't do that."


"It was a spur of the moment thing that he did. I think he meant to get him on the shoulder, but he got him on the back of the neck."

While opinions vary, many players sympathize with Rielly's defense of team pride. The incident underscores the intensity and unwavering loyalty within NHL rivalries.
