It's always news when a Toronto Maple Leafs team is put through its paces after an embarrassing outing. But for circumstances out of his control, the punishing workout Mike Babcock conducted Wednesday afternoon took on added surveillance.
When the power went out at the arena during the sweat, the Maple Leafs coach continued sprinting his skaters up and down the ice to atone for the 7-0 beatdown they were handed from the Los Angeles Kings the previous night.

After catching his breath in the locker room, Jake Gardiner admitted he thought the power outage had brought the Maple Leafs reprieve.
"I was thinking, thank goodness we're getting off the ice," he said, according to TSN's Kristen Shilton.
"Babs had different ideas."
