Leafs fans freak out after team blows 3-0 lead in Game 3 OT loss

Aug 7 2020, 6:05 am

The Toronto Maple Leafs are heading into the weekend with the unusual NHL season on the line.

And Leafs fans are not happy.

The Columbus Blue Jackets were trailing 3-0 halfway through the second period on Thursday night before a hat trick from  Pierre-Luc Dubois lead to an overtime heartbreak for Leafs fans.

When Dubois scored with 1:36 left in OT, Leafs fans may have harkened back to that still-heart breaking loss against the Boston Bruins in 2013.

It was the third time in the Blue Jackets’ playoff history that they scored four unanswered goals after facing a 3-0 deficit. For the Leafs, it means things could potentially get really ugly on Friday night as they try to stave off elimination at 8 pm ET.

Until then, here’s how fans reacted to Thursday night’s bitter loss in the virtual world.
