Whether it was intentional, or a complete accident, someone should have stuck up for Timothy Liljegren of the Toronto Maple Leafs when he was injured after getting tangled up with Brad Marchand. One member of the Leafs says that won't happen again.

Toronto was called out for being soft following Lilijegren's injury as no one even came close to having Marchand answer the bell for it. Instead, other than Ryan Reaves, his teammates barely seemed to even notice, while Tyler Bertuzzi thought there was something funny about it.


Reaves now says the issue has been discussed in the dressing room, and players know what's expected of them.


"It was addressed in the room. It'll change going forward."


It was likely head coach Sheldon Keefe who said something, as he told reporters today he was not happy with the way things went down.

"I hated everything about it."


Meanwhile, Bertuzzi refused to explain his actions.

"People can perceive that however they want. I'm not going to explain myself."


The two teams meet again on December 2nd.
