Last night, the Battle of Ontario between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators got extremely heated, and everyone in the hockey world is talking about it. However, one play went under the radar due to the brawl at the end of the game, Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe was caught on camera accusing Tim Stutzle is the biggest diver in the NHL.


Stutzle drew a weak tripping call late in the third period, and Sheldon Keefe went off behind the bench. Reading his lips, it's clear that he says that Stutzle is the biggest diver in the NHL, along with a string of expletives directed at the referees.

The penalty call itself actually could be called a trip, as Leafs defenceman Simon Benoit did get his stick into the skates of Stutzle, but as he's developed a reputation for it and went down incredibly easy on the play.


Thankfully for Stutzle, Keefe's comments caught on camera flew under the radar with the rest of the chaos at the end of the game, when Ridly Greig took a slap shot into an empty net and Morgan Rielly delivered a cross check to the face for payback. On that incident too, Keefe stood up for his players, and said Rielly had an appropriate response.



Unfortunately for all hockey fans, these two teams won't play each other for the rest of the season. Hopefully, the tensions of this match are still in their minds when they meet again next season, because this game felt like it needed a part two.
