LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs on Nov. 19 at T-Mobile Arena, 4 to 2.

Today the Toronto coach has been fired.

"Toronto Maple Leafs President, Brendan Shanahan, announced today that Mike Babcock has been relieved of his coaching duties and Sheldon Keefe has been named the team's new head coach," the Maple Leafs posted on twitter.

The game included an incredible save by Vegas' goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, that many on social media are calling the reason for the termination.
