Phil Kessel to reporters after blowout loss to Sabres: 'Get away from me'

John E Sokolowski / USA TODAY Sports

The Toronto Maple Leafs were dominated by the lowly Buffalo Sabres in a 6-2 loss on Saturday night, and Phil Kessel wasn't interested in talking about it afterwards.

Kessel had one thing to say to the assembled media before abruptly leaving the scrum, according to TSN 1050 reporter Jonas Siegel.

Several reporters expressed their displeasure with Kessel's behavior and questioned his leadership after the incident.

He scored his 11th goal of the season and registered five shots in the game, but the Maple Leafs were thoroughly outplayed by one of the league's worst teams.

The Leafs don't play again until Tuesday, so local sports radio producers can thank Kessel for providing them with call-in fodder for the next 48 hours.
