Gary Bettman and the NHL create a scandal for Leafs fans and hockey in Canada

The Maple Leafs are in a tough spot as they trail the Panthers 2-0 with the next two games in Florida.

Sheldon Keefe's men will need a lot of determination, but also a few good ones and some luck.

On this subject, a very bad news has just been announced and the fans are crying foul. It all has to do with the referees who will be on duty for the third game.

Indeed, Wes McCauley will be the referee, which means that the chances of the Leafs losing just increased drastically.



There is a history between the Maple Leafs head coach and referee McCauley's brother-in-law, as Keefe testified against him in front of the judge on serious charges.

Is Gary Bettman working to have another Canadian team eliminated, leaving only Edmonton and the chances of the Stanley Cup staying in the United States? I won't go that far, but Leafs fans are screaming and angry right now.

You can't blame them, but imagine if the Habs were in the same situation and the official referee for the game was Chris Lee.
