Leafs announcer shows his clear bias live on air

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly made his return after his 5 game suspension for cross checking Ottawa Senator Ridly Greig. Although Rielly didn't put up any points, he still played a very effective game putting up a +2, 4 SOG, 2 hits and 3 blocks.

The Leafs have been on a heater, being 8-2-0 in the last 10. But we all know what is going to happen in the playoffs, especially with their most likely matchup being Boston or Florida.

Leafs broadcaster Joe Bowen made a ‘funny' comment on Morgan Rielly play, but I guess Leaf fans/supporters forgot that a cross check to the head after a goal is a suspension.

This hit was obviously a light one and the commentators is playing around, but the majority of Leaf fans still think the initial 5 games was too much. Which is strongly debatable but I think it is reasonable considering Perron got 6 games.

The Leafs are finally showing some grit in their game and are coming out with success, but are still not a top 3 Canadian team in my books.
