Matthew Tkachuk trending after comments towards Leafs elimination

Published May 5, 2024 at 6:51 PM

After the Boston Bruins beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in the playoffs, Florida Panthers player Matthew Tkachuk had some strong words to share. Tkachuk is known for speaking his mind, and this time was no different.

He basically said that most people knew the Bruins would win. Tkachuk thinks the Maple Leafs didn't stand a chance against Boston. His comments, made on Sunday, suggest he never really believed the Maple Leafs could pull off a win.

Tkachuk: "Without this coming out too badly, I think we all knew it was probably going to Boston the way that series was going...I think throughout the whole series we were probably expecting they were going to come out and win it one way or another."

These remarks might not sit well with Maple Leafs fans. They might feel like Tkachuk is disrespecting their team. But in the world of playoff hockey, emotions run high, and every opinion matters.
