Leafs fans furious as Bruins avoid blatant suspension ahead of Game time 7!

The Toronto Maple Leafs forced a Game 7 in their first round series against the Boston Bruins on Thursday night, but despite the 2-1 win, fans are furious over a blatant missed call by the officials during the contest.

Right after their favourite club’s victory, Maple Leafs’ fans took over social media to comment on how the game played out and in particular the officiating. Many of them claim that one specific hit delivered by Bruins Charlie McAvoy should have been called and are now accusing the league of ignoring a possible suspension in Boston ahead of Game 7.

The hit in question was made to the head of Leafs’ David Kampf, who was in a vulnerable position near the boards behind the Bruins’ net and was left with a bloody nose on the sequence. There was no penalty called on this play and no discipline is expected at this time.

This is what took place and how Maple Leafs’ fans are furious over the non call:

Over recent seasons, emphasis has been place on player safety, but forget about it when it comes to the hit on Kampf…

It is of course a fact that some missed calls will take place during the postseason, especially in an intense matchup between Boston and Toronto. However, a hit can leads to injury cannot be ignored, especially when it involves hits to the head that the league claims it wants out of the game for good.

In last night’s Game 6, Kampf did not record a point, though he ended the night with a +1 rating and a shot attempt in just under 13 minutes of ice time.

As for McAvoy, he has been a key player for the Bruins, posting four assists in all six contests. He played huge minutes on Thursday night, a total of 26 and 29 seconds. The Bruins probably couldn’t fill his void if he had been called and possibly suspended for that hit on Kampf.
