For the second time this season, a fan has thrown a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey on to the ice at the Air Canada Centre.
This act, whether it happens in Edmonton or Toronto, is getting old. So old. The latest episode comes after the Leafs lost to the visiting Detroit Red Wings by a final score of 4-1 on Friday. Toronto’s record fell to 2-3 in five games.
The Leafs also lost two forwards – Brandon Kozun and Daniel Winnik – to injury in this game.
The incident occurred with about six minutes remaining in the third period.
The Leafs have lost three of their first four home games.
For the record, the sweater number was Dion Phaneuf’s No. 3 — a player who usually draws most of the fans’ scorn.
Now, there was a report via Twitter that this may not have been the work of a Maple Leafs fan.
