Disaster looms in Toronto as playoffs approach

BY MARCO    MARCH 5, 2023  (10:24)
It was a night to forget for the Toronto Maple Leafs last night as they lost 4-1 to the Vancouver Canucks.

In addition to losing the game, a potentially disastrous scenario occurred, as the team also lost newcomer Ryan O'Reilly, who suffered a hand injury from an Auston Matthews shot.

After the game, Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe said only that we would have more news tomorrow.

However, based on the footage, reporter Michael Augello said that the Toronto star forward could miss a few weeks:


"Based on a similar injury to Tyler Bertuzzi earlier this season, we're talking about five or six weeks of recovery if it's a broken finger or metacarpal. If it's a bruise, it would be a much shorter absence."

Ouch!

This is a very unfortunate outcome for this organization that has staked everything this season on getting through the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the playoffs.

In eight games with his new team, O'Reilly collected five points, including three goals.

This will be a record to watch.
