The Toronto Maple Leafs will not be pushed around

There is one thing I’ve noticed about the Toronto Maple Leafs this year is that they are not going to be pushed around.  Even the host of CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada’s Coach’s Corner, Don Cherry recognized that fact on the weekend when he analyzed the first period of the Montreal game.

You don't need evidence at that moment... maybe the next day when you decide if you should rescind a penalty. Do you need evidence to know if a disallowed goal is a mistake?
