Mike Babcock’s First Season With Maple Leafs Hasn’t Gone To Plan (Video)

The Toronto Maple Leafs got a proven winner in Mike Babcock when they hired him as their new head coach, but Year 1 hasn’t exactly gone to plan for the organization.

The Leafs enter Saturday night’s game against the Boston Bruins in seventh place in the Atlantic Division with 39 points. That’s a lot different than Babcock’s 28-11-3 record through his first 42 games with the Detroit Red Wings.

Hear NESN’s Billy Jaffe, Barry Pederson and Dale Arnold discuss it all in the video from “Bruins Face-Off Live” above.
