The Toronto Maple Leafs are still recovering from a 4-1 loss to Vancouver. Not only were the crushed figuratively, they were overpowered at every turn.

Nylander Shares Thoughts On Myers Hit



The Tyler Myers hit on John Tavares caused waves on social media. The 6'8" Myers throws massive hits, thus Tavares could have been injured.

In retaliation, William Nylander decided to go after the guy 10 inches his senior. Luckily, Jake McCabe came in as well.



Now Nylander has commented on the events:

"Yeah I thought, I mean, it was kind of a bad hit after he shot the puck. He shot the puck a little while before that and got hit and ‘Caber (Jake McCabe) did a great job" - Nylander

"Were you ready to get in there or were you happy that Jake (McCabe) jumped in?" - Mark Masters

"Oh yeah he came flying in, thank God!" - Nylander


Good effort from Nylander, but he might've been a little over his head going after Myers!
