Toronto Maple Leafs fined Max Domi for this reason

The coach of the Maple Leafs scolds Max Domi for “crossing the line” against the Bruins.

Boston — In Game 1, Max Domi of the Toronto Maple Leafs attempted to get under the Boston Bruins’ skin, but he ended up hurting his team more than helping it.

The Stanley Cup Playoffs got underway early for Domi, who spoke with Brad Marchand before the puck even dropped. This led to a long talk between Domi and the on-ice official. The forward played carelessly on the ice, even though he forced Charlie McAvoy to accept a penalty at the end of the first period.

Marchand’s slashing penalty set up Jake DeBrusk’s second power play goal of the game, almost sealing the Bruins’ 5-1 victory at TD Garden.
“Sheedless fines. Sheldon Keefe, the coach of the Maple Leafs, described Domi’s penalty as “undisciplined” following the game. “I know what he’s trying to achieve, but he can’t do it since he crossed the line there. That’s just recklessness; the others are just the two high sticks, you know? You simply have to be precise during this time of year. You must not permit your stick to rise in that manner.

In the Maple Leafs’ Saturday defeat, they were called for five penalties, and the Bruins took advantage of two of those chances. In the end, Toronto’s attempt to be physical against a formidable Boston club appeared more concentrated, but ultimately failed.

When the two teams play again on Monday night at TD Garden for Game 2, the Leafs will now need to come from behind Boston order to avoid falling behind 2-0 and having to travel back to Toronto.
