Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe is already pointing fingers after the team's loss in Game 1 of the playoffs against the Boston Bruins.

Keefe blamed the absence of player William Nylander for their performance, saying,
"We didn't handle it very well tonight... Certainly missed him."

He also mentioned that Nylander's absence didn't excuse the team's mistakes, such as bad penalties and defensive zone breakdowns.

Keefe on Toronto missing Nylander:


«We didn't handle it very well tonight. Certainly missed him.»

Added that Nylander's absence didn't change that the Leafs were knocked for bad penalties and D-zone breakdowns.


Keefe's remarks suggest that the Leafs may be looking for excuses rather than addressing the issues that led to their defeat in the game.
