Tensions are on the rise between the Toronto Maple Leafs and reporters who cover the team.
Brian Burke came out in defence of coach Ron Wilson on his Twitter account late Sunday night after Wilson endured criticism for starting James Reimer for Saturday’s 4-1 loss in Boston.
“I love the quote about the liars in sports,” wrote Burke. “Many gainfully employed in the media.”
Wilson was accused of lying after indicating that Jonas Gustavsson would start against the Bruins following Friday’s practice. Instead, he chose to give Reimer his first action since the goaltender suffered concussion-like symptoms after a collision with Habs captain Brian Gionta on Oct. 22.
The general manager indicated Wilson simply had a change of heart.
