Last night, the Toronto Maple Leafs lost 7-0. That is the opposite of good.
So it would seem that Mike Babcock was not going to cancel or even delay practice for any reason.
Not even if, say, the lights went out.
On the one hand, isn’t it kind of dangerous to be skating around and practicing in the dark? On the other hand, these are professionals, some of the top people in the world at skating around, so it’s probably fine.
It’s not like it’s total darkness - it’s actually kind of romantic, if you think about it. Or spooky.
I’m gonna go with romantic - imagine Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews launching into a duet with that lighting.
I do like how you can clearly hear Babcock yelling in the video, though. Hopefully stuff like a 7-0 loss just... doesn’t happen again, eh?
