Gary Bettman and NHL tarnished by decision compromising league's integrity

You may not have noticed, but the third game of the series between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Florida Panthers was technically scheduled to take place tonight, May 6th, but it will ultimately be played tomorrow (Sunday).

It's still a pretty weird situation, especially to skip a Saturday night, which is always the biggest hockey moment of the week in Canada. It has become a sacred event across the country for Toronto or Montreal games.

Related to this strange situation, journalist Renaud Lavoie claimed on BPM Sports that the Panthers pushed hard with the NHL to move the game to Sunday night.

Of course, this league decision has startled Toronto media, who raise a great lack of integrity on the part of the NHL, as Florida is greatly favored by this change, since Paul Maurice's squad had played five games in nine nights.


The Panthers head coach did not hide his satisfaction by publicly mentioning that these two days off are worth gold for his team.


In the midst of the playoffs, it's little details like this that can make a big difference, and clearly, this league decision only favors one team, the Panthers.
