Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe was ejected late in the third period of Tuesday’s 6-2 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

Keefe was assessed a game misconduct with 2:14 remaining in the third period after arguing with referee Garrett Rank and was forced to leave the bench.

The 43-year-old did not comment on his ejection when he addressed the media following the game.

"Not going there, not going there," Keefe said.

Keefe did note, however, that the penalties were lopsided in the loss. 

"Power plays are four to one in the game - that's a factor," Keefe said. "That's not on the officials. That's part of the way the game goes."

The Maple Leafs saw their seven-game win streak come to an end with their defeat on home ice.
