Videos- Mike Babcock Feels The Toronto Maple Leafs Were “Ripped Off” Last Night

from the CP at TSN,

The steam was still oozing off Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock in the moments after the team's 20th loss in the past 25 games.

Babcock was furious with the officiating in a 2-1 Thursday defeat to the Minnesota Wild at the Air Canada Centre. The Wild scored both goals on the power play, including the winner from Mikael Granlund with Leo Komarov in the penalty box.

"I thought we got ripped off big time today," Babcock said. "I don't get it. It makes no sense to me. The other thing I know is the people didn't pay to watch (the officials) play, they pay to watch the players."


Below, watch Mike Babcock post-game plus the penalty call on Komarov...

For ten years in Detroit, Babcock refused to comment on the idiocy of the officials. What made him change his mind now?

I can think of 50 million reasons why he’s no longer worried about being fined.
