Kadri to have hearing for actions in Maple Leafs game against Bruins

Nazem Kadri was the best player on the ice for the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 2 against the Boston Bruins. Kadri was suspended three games. As the Leafs trailed 3-1 to the Bruins, Kadri sought out DeBrusk after he delivered a hit on Patrick Marleau, then Kadri delivered a cross-check to the winger's face. At the 14:03 mark of the third period, Kadri cross checked Boston Bruins forward Jake Debrusk in the throat area. His cross-check on Jake DeBrusk in Game 2, to them, looked an terrible lot like what Kadri did to Luke Glendening three years ago, a play that resulted in a four-game suspension.

But the most controversial moments of violence revolved around Nazem Kadri, and his actions might force him to miss some time, too.

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.

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

DeBrusk said postgame he underwent a series of tests after leaving the game and is waiting for the results before he learns if he can play Monday in Game 3.

During the second period, Kadri was shaken up by a knee-to-knee collision with Jake DeBrusk.

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

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.

Nazem Kadri and the Toronto Maple Leafs have been paying close attention to some of the eyebrow-raising results early in the National Hockey League playoffs. The Maple Leafs went on to lose that series in seven games.

Kadri was assessed a hooking penalty late in the period, and as he raced to get back in the play, took a knee-on-knee hit from DeBrusk.

"I thought it was clean, looking back on it, shoulder to shoulder", Cassidy said.

After the hit on Wingels in last year's playoffs, Kadri spoke to reporters and defended the play. "I talked to the ref, he said he dropped him, and it was just a big hit". He was handed a five-minute major for cross-checking and a 10-minute match penalty. I think you'll like his answer.

"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".

To the surprise of some, Kadri returned for the third period.
