The National Hockey League has investigated a complaint from Toronto Maple Leafs coach Paul Maurice yesterday that his team's shooting end was not properly prepared for the shootout against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. Mike Murphy, the NHL's senior vice-president of hockey operations, confirmed that the league looked into the matter yesterday, but that no conclusions had been reached. "We have already started to review the situation," Murphy said. "We need to be careful not to react to accusations by one team or organization against another. "The video didn't show a poor scrape job, it just showed the cleaned ice to be narrower at the Montreal end [Toronto's shooting end]. Was this planned? Hard for anyone to say, but we are dealing with this."more
