Toronto Maple Leafs fans are beefing with Ottawa Public Health
On Monday, OPH took to Twitter to encourage Ottawa residents to remain optimistic while the city dealt with some snowfall. In doing this, they also took a swing at Toronto's hockey team.
So, snow. In October. Between that & the pandemic, we know it's been hard lately. But if Leafs fans can still be optimistic when going into Game 7 of a playoff series against Boston, surely the rest of us can find ways to keep the faith & stay the course. #StayStrong #BeCOVIDwise— Ottawa Public Health (@ottawahealth) October 26, 2020
While it's no secret that the two cities are hockey rivals, Twitter users came quickly to the Leafs' defense by pointing out that the Ottawa Senators have never won a Game 7 in the franchise's history.
Never forget that the Sens have never won a Game 7 in franchise history. https://t.co/C3gG45BGEv— A.I. Jay (@HymanHustles) October 26, 2020
"Care to guess who the leafs won their last game 7 against? Go ahead, guess," another person wrote, to which the OPH responded.
Ouch. Hilarious, but ouch.— Ottawa Public Health (@ottawahealth) October 26, 2020
Well played, sir. Very well played, indeed.
p.s. be #COVIDwise
Others couldn't help but agree with Ottawa's public health unit, although they admitted that a dig at the Leafs was a low blow.

I mean, it’s true. But still.
"Rude but accurate," someone else tweeted.
Ha Ha! And if Sens fans can still be optimistic after losing player after player then ....... 😀— Kathy Chase (@KathLBC) October 26, 2020
For some, this admittedly hilarious jab simply provided a good laugh on a dreary Monday morning.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have defeated the Ottawa Senators each time they've faced each other in the playoffs, the last time being in 2004.
Of course, those who aren't Leafs fans will probably remember that the team lost to the Boston Bruins three times during a Game 7: in 2013, 2018, and 2019.
Either way, it's safe to say that the Toronto Maple Leafs' fans have got their team's back.
