Suspension Likely For Morgan Reilly After Brutal Cross-Check On Senators Forward

Suspension Likely For Morgan Reilly After Brutal Cross-Check On Senators Forward

BY GRAHAM MONTGOMERY    FEBRUARY 10, 2024  (10:18 PM)
The Toronto Maple Leafs dropped another critical game tonight as the Senators bested them for the 3rd time this season. However, this won't be the only concern for Leafs fans tonight as one key player could have earned a suspension for a play late in the game.

Reilly Cross Checks Senators Player In The face



With the Leafs down 4-3 late in the game, they had the goalie pulled. Ultimately, Ridley Greig would get a break towards the empty net and he put it in with a clapper in the dying seconds of the game. Leafs defenseman Morgan Reilly seemingly took offense to this as he immediately went after Greig and cross checked him in the head.

Ridly Greig buries the empty-netter with a slapshot and Morgan Rielly takes exception 😳




The incident resulted in a lot of discussion online following the game. Many fans criticized Reilly for the rash and unnecessary action.

Morgan Reilly is so fucking soft 😭😭😭😭😭. That slap shot was funny, sore losers


Reilly did get a major penalty as well as a match penalty for the play. Now we will look to the Department of Player Safety to see if any supplementary discipline will come to the Leafs defenseman. Considering the nature of the infraction, it is certainly possible.
DO YOU THINK REILLY WILL BE SUSPENDED FOR THIS CROSS CHECK?
