Toronto Maple Leafs avoid stick salute at ACC

The Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2 yesterday, but players are still taking some scrutiny from the media for what happened following the regulation horn.

Former Maple Leafs head coach Ron Wilson commented on Toronto's embarrassing 9-2 loss to the Nashville Predators. It was the first time since 1992 that the team gave up nine goals at home since 1992.
