The Toronto Maple Leafs appeared to be crumbling before our very eyes two nights ago as they fell into a 3-1 series deficit against the Boston Bruins.

Auston Matthews leaving the game with an illness was overshadowed by an aggressive verbal argument between Toronto Maple Leafs core-four members Mitch Marner and William Nylander on the bench, where Nylander yelled at him to stop f***ing crying, this isn't junior league, and Marner angrily threw his glove onto the ground.
Sheldon Keefe addressed the scene, and made things very clear:
"I look at it as something that happens when things aren't going well. But in the past, they wouldn't have talked it out, or argued it out. I look at it as progress, them being pissed off they didn't deliver. I don't look at it as frustration."

While this felt like a deflection, and didn't get much acknowledgement publicly, all seemed to be headed in the right direction in Toronto.
The childish scene went viral on social media as it represented the loss for the Maple Leafs so well; another pin in the coffin that seems to be this group. Today, however, Mitch Marner and William Nylander were seen on the bench together again, in much different spirits.

The two angry guys from two nights ago are back to being best friends! If things don't change soon with the series against the Boston Bruins, however, they may not be on the same team for too long.
