Nazem Kadri ejected from Game 2 after cross-check to Jake DeBrusk

Mike Augello - Boston to step up physical play in Game 2; Leafs vs. Bruins

The Boston Bruins got mean against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 2, and now their Round 1 series is even 1-1. Kadri was suspended three games. The hit knocked DeBrusk to the ice and the Bruins forward did not return to the game. Things won't come easy for the Bruins in this one though as they have struggled to find a way to win in recent trips to Toronto as they are 2-7 in their last 9 trips to the Ontario capital and they are just 1-5 in their last 6 playoff games as an underdog which are two trends favoring the Buds in this one. This would be the fifth time in his career that he's been suspended for an illegal check and the eighth time he's faced discipline from the league - he's been fined three times.

The Bruins won 4-1 to tie the series at one game apiece.

"I certainly wasn't trying to hit him while he was down like that".

And DeBrusk and Kadri collided later in the period. When asked about the infraction, Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said he didn't see it and has not yet reviewed it.

The NHL Department of Player Safety announced a few minutes after midnight via Twitter that Kadri has been offered an in-person hearing, with date and time to be determined. In re-watching the video of the knee-on-knee hit on Kadri, it appears that they ran into each other. The Maple Leafs went on to lose that series in seven games.

The hit by Debrusk on Marleau was hard hit, but a player shouldn't have to worry about being cross checked in the face after making a play.

"It's time for f-ing Auston Matthews to wake up", Avery said. DeBrusk and Kadri went off for roughing after wrestling on the ice, although the latter did little to warrant a penalty, save for getting punched in the face.

Walton posted an incredible 39-4 record as a fill-in for Kerr, and even took home NBA Coach of the Month honors during his time. Following Walton's departure from the Lakers, Kerr shared his thoughts on his former understudy.

Before five minutes had elapsed, the Bruins scored off a tenacious forecheck when David Backes, a healthy scratch for Game 1, centred to Charlie Coyle, who beat Frederik Andersen at 4:44.

After the hit on Wingels in last year's playoffs, Kadri spoke to reporters and defended the play.

"But obviously the refs had their whistle up their ass or they were too f-ing slow and were two lines behind the play, so they didn't see it so they couldn't have called it".

Said Cassidy: "I thought it was clean". Pastrnak promptly fed a no-look-behind-the-back pass to Marchand, who slid a shot between Andersen's pads.

I talked to a few National Hockey League sources Sunday, trying to get a sense of where this was headed.

At the other end, Tuukka Rask faced 31 shots, and his shutout bid was gone at 10:44 of the third period when Kadri deflected a Travis Dermott shot into the net.
