Leafs' Kadri could face suspension for high hit

Leafs' Kadri could face suspension for high hit

Winger William Nylander will take Nazem Kadri's place at center on Toronto's third line when the Maple Leafs host the Boston Bruins in Game 3 of their first-round series Monday night. Kadri is a repeat offender and obviously hasn't learned his lesson.

The Department of Player Safety factors a player's history into its discipline. Kadri needs to have the book thrown at him. Kadri cross-checked DeBrusk in the third period after a series of physical exchanges throughout the game, earning himself a five-minute major and a game misconduct.

"We're in a best of five now, we've got to dig in". Kadri skated over to DeBrusk and hit the Bruins forward in the head with his stick.

Several Maple Leafs players made available after Saturday's game said they did not see Kadri's hit on DeBrusk from a proper angle and therefore did not want to comment on it. Kadri was suspended three games.

"I don't think he tried to hit him in the head or anything", the defenceman said. If penalties are called, maybe we'll be on the better side of things. Okay, fine. Mark it down as a missed call. Should there have been a penalty? He was fourth on the Bruins during the regular season with 27 goals. The video embedded below will give you a great idea how this game went.

Tiger Woods makes a Masters logjam look even larger
Despite missing two birdie chances inside 8 feet on the back nine, he holed consecutive 30-foot birdie putts for a 4-under 68. Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith (both even par) rounded out the Australian contingent at the April major.

The Bruins came out of the gate with a goal, bludgeoning every Toronto player in sight and building a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes inside an electric TD Garden. It was an overreaction by Kadri. "The initial reaction - never had something like that happen before so obviously you're always anxious, but, lucky enough, when I got back to the room I checked all the points on the checklist and felt good enough". "Looking back on it, shoulder-to-shoulder". I just got a little too comfortable, made a pass to the middle and just didn't expect Muzzin to step up and hit me.

"Their intensity was at a different level", said Toronto head coach Mike Babcock, whose team won the opener by the same 4-1 score.

"Obviously, the league decides on all this kind of stuff", Babcock told the media after the game. "So the way I look at it is we can't worry about that now, just have to move on". I haven't reviewed it, so I don't really know that. The Bruins have gone 20-21 on the road and they have averaged 2.85 gpg and have allowed 2.73 gpg in those games. In the end, you can't let that get in the way of what you're doing. Playing in the Stanley Cup playoffs isn't supposed to be easy, and it's worth it. This the second playoff series in a row that he's going to end up watching from that stands. In fact, Matthews now has just two points (one goal) in nine playoffs games against Boston.

Despite Avery's endorsement, Kadri faces a suspension for the second straight postseason. Kadri is starting to get quite a rap sheet. Kadri was suspended three games during last year's Round 1 series; will he involuntarily take a seat again?

Inserted into the lineup after getting healthy scratched for Game 1, veteran winger David Backes was first to a loose puck behind Toronto's net before feeding Coyle in front to bury a shot past Frederik Andersen, who was terrific in making 37 saves, for a 1-0 lead just 4:44 in.
