On Saturday night, the Toronto Maple Leafs lost the game to the Boston Bruins by a score of 3-1. The game also led the Bruins to a 3-1 series lead, putting the Leafs on the brink of elimination. It wasn't the loss that drew most of the people's attention, but instead an incident that occurred on the Maple Leaf bench.

During the second period of the game, cameras captured William Nylander in a heated exchange with Mitch Marner. After Marner was caught angrily throwing his gloves on the bench, it appears that Nylander had finally had enough. Nylander quickly turned to Marner and told him to "stop f*cking crying".

While the details of the incident have been shrugged off by the team. Today. NHL Insider Chris Johnston of Sportsnet shared the following details that no one had any idea of.

An interesting part about that bickering, Julian, is that William Nylander was wearing a microphone on this night.

Johnston goes on to mention, he doubts the audio ever sees the light of day, but it's an interesting wrinkle. Did Nylander remember he was being recorded or was he just so fed up that he didn't care anymore?
