Former NHL player sends brutal text to reporter involving the Leafs following the Habs' Win

Published June 8, 2021 at 6:24 PM

Montreal is still having a good time. The Winnipeg Jets' season came to an end last night when the Montreal Canadiens swept the second-round series with a 3-2 overtime win to move to the third round, where they will face the winner of the Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche series.

No one expected the Habs to do so well in this series, let alone sweep the Jets: it was simply unthinkable.

The Canadiens intended to show everyone that they were incorrect, and they did it by sweeping the Winnipeg Jets, who had swept the Edmonton Oilers in the first round. The Canadiens were the last NHL team to clinch a playoff berth this season, and they've been on a roll since defeating the top-seeded Toronto Maple Leafs of the North Division in Game 7 of the first round.

This lunacy prompted a former NHLer to send ESPN insider Emily Kaplan a text that will frighten the Maple Leafs a week after they were eliminated from the playoffs:

This madness prompte a former NHLer to send insider Emily Kaplan of ESPN a text that will rattle the poor Maple Leafs a week after their playoff elimination:

«Montreal eliminated more teams in the last week than Toronto has in 17 years. This league man.»

The Maple Leafs last won a series against the Ottawa Senators in 2004, two years after their previous two wins in the conference final in 2002. Since the 2004-05 lockout, the Leafs have made six postseason appearances, losing four of them in seven games.

They were eliminated in the first round once more this year, this time due to Game 7. Then there's this!
