While Leafs fans were happy that their time fought to live another day by forcing a Game 6 on Monday night in Toronto, fans on Twitter had no issues voicing their displeasure with the officiating.

In his post-game presser, head coach Mike Babcock let it be known that he wasn’t exactly thrilled, either, with some of the calls that were made, and acknowledged that Freddie Andersen was the Leafs best penalty killer throughout the Bruins' six power plays.

You could tell Auston Matthews and Nazem Kadri weren't overly pleased with how they called the game.


Even the refs down at Maple Leafs Square couldn’t escape the criticism.
