Instead of Motivating his Teammates, Matthews Was Busy Getting a Manicure

During the second intermission of the game between the Leafs and the Panthers, a scene filmed in the Leafs' locker room quickly went viral. Instead of motivating his teammates for the most important period of their season, Auston Matthews was busy getting a little manicure. Michel Bergeron did not hesitate to ridicule the Leafs' captain after catching a glimpse of this sequence.

Michel Bergeron's comment mainly aimed to highlight the glaring lack of leadership among the Leafs, which is particularly lacking in the Toronto lineup in this series.

We must admit that this situation is rather funny!




Sheldon Keefe's men eventually lost by a score of 3 to 2 in overtime thanks to a goal from Sam Reinhart, trailing 3-0 in their series against the Panthers.

Moreover, to further worsen the Leafs' fate, Ilya Samsonov had to leave the game early in the second period after a collision with his teammate, Luke Schenn.

It is hard to see how Toronto will be able to come back in this series, as the Leafs could face elimination as early as Wednesday night.
