It was a sad day for Maple Leaf fans yesterday, as the team was eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In a soul-crushing 3-1 loss against the Montreal Canadiens, the Leafs ended their journey in Game 7 of the series. In case you’re not in the know, the Maple Leafs held a commanding 3 games to 1 lead in the series, before the Canadiens stormed back to win three straight in dramatic fashion. To no surprise, folks online had a lot to say about it.
From disappointed Toronto fans to overjoyed Montrealers, here’s what Twitter had to say about last night’s Maple Leafs’ defeat:

One of the funniest tweets of the night was in reference to the Maple Leafs allowing 550 fully-vaccinated frontline workers to the game, making it the first live audience at a sporting event in Toronto in over a year.

Extremely dangerously focused man, who can steal a series all by himself last seen boarding an airplane heading toward Winnipeg. Will not stop stealing until he hoists a #StanleyCup. #GoJetsGo #GoHabsGo pic.twitter.com/6BJytFNVz9
