The Toronto Maple Leafs got absolutely destroyed on Saturday in Pittsburgh by a score of 6-1.
That's now five straight losses for the Leafs and things aren't looking very optimistic.
After the latest loss, the fire Babcock rumblings started up again and many people are calling for his head.
NHL insider Bob McKenzie weighed in on the possibility of firing Babcock soon while appearing on TSN690, and while he doesn't see it happening this week, if the Leafs perform on this road trip like they did in Pittsburgh, something's going to happen.
"I don't believe that the Toronto Maple Leafs are eager to fire Babcock"
McKenzie added that the next three games against Vegas, Arizona and Colorado will likely determine the Leafs' next move.
Bob McKenzie on TSN690: "I don't believe that the Toronto Maple Leafs are eager to fire Babcock". Says it's not their first option of what to do. Says response of how team plays like for next three games will be important. Cant play like they did in PGH or something has to change
