Fans hit back at Leafs captain John Tavares

He's feeling the wrath of fans after Toronto's latest loss.



The Toronto Maple Leafs came back to earth in a big way last night at Scotiabank Arena, as their Original 6 and Atlantic Division rival Boston Bruins imposed their will upon them to the tune of a 4-1 triumph. 

A pair of goals from Pavel Zacha along with tallies from Morgan Geekie and Jake DeBrusk paced the Bruins offense, who only surrendered a single goal from the Leafs thanks to captain John Tavares. 

And it was Tavares who stated the obvious fact afterward that there is little to no room for error against top teams like Boston.

"Playing against a team like Boston and games down the stretch, margins are very small," he said. "It's a good lesson for us today. We have to be really good for 60 minutes against good hockey clubs. It's a good reminder for us."

But not long after his comments, Leafs fans began to hit back at the Leafs captain, with the theme being that they can't continue to need to learn lessons - especially being a team that has only won a single playoff series since 2004. 

Are the fans right to be lashing out at Tavares' comments?
