Boston Bruins Even Series With Leafs, Lose Jake DeBrusk to Dirty Hit

2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri may face another postseason suspension, this time for cross-check Maple Leafs’ Nazem Kadri Facing In-Person Hearing For Cross-Check On Jake DeBrusk

Nazem Kadri, who could be facing another suspension after crosschecking Jake DeBrusk in the head late in the third following a three-game ban in last spring's series against the Bruins, replied for Toronto.

"I've said this before, it feels like an quake under you".

Scoreless following a spirited first period where the home side upped its physical play after getting dominated in Game 2, the offensive floodgates opened with five goals in the second.

The Boston Bruins tied the Calgary Flames for the 2nd most points in the league this year, but they did not play well down the stretch and they went out and lost game one on their home ice by a score of 4-1. "Basically let them know how we're going to play". His cross-check on Jake DeBrusk in Game 2, to them, looked an bad lot like what Kadri did to Luke Glendening three years ago, a play that resulted in a four-game suspension.

"It's disappointing for Naz, it's disappointing for our team", Babcock said. The pair wrestled on the ice in the first and were assessed two minutes each for roughing, with DeBrusk punching Kadri in the face.

How did we get here?

Veteran winger Tyler Ennis draws into the lineup and takes Brown's spot on the fourth line to make up for Kadri's absence. Tavares was knocked into him by a Bruins defender and Rask was down for a couple minutes but stayed in the game.

But the Bruins quickly reminded the Leafs why they finished ahead of them in the Atlantic Division race when Leafs defenceman Jake Muzzin took a holding penalty late in the period.

For the Maple Leafs, Andersen is 1-1 with a 2.50 GAA and.937 save percentage.

The two would once again meet up in the third period.

The amusing thing about that was that the on-ice part of his game wasn't even what anxious the Leafs most.

Andersen - by far the best Leaf - robbed Heinen with an exceptional glove save on a power play before Rask made a toe stop on Andreas Johnsson.

The Bruins evened their opening round playoff series 1-1 with their win on Saturday.

Leafs head coach Mike Babcock switched up his top two lines and mixed his defence pairings looking for a spark.

Not only does Kadri have an extensive track record of incidents that have risen to the level of supplemental discipline, resulting in several suspensions, but this is the second year in a row he has taken himself out of a playoff series for an extended period of time due to his own recklessness and selfishness. "Ideally all those things are contagious".

Barely a year ago, the centre sat out three games of the Leafs' series against Boston after charging into an already down Tommy Wingels. His inability to control his emotions may have prevented him from playing that role, and may ultimately provide him a one-way ticket out of town.

There are times when you would not be able to pay me enough to be part of the NHL's department of player safety because of the agonizingly hard decisions they sometimes face.

William Nylander will assume Kadri's position in the middle of the third line, between Connor Brown and Patrick Marleau.

At the end of Game 2, the statistics reflected Boston's domination. Game 6, if necessary, would be back at Scotiabank Arena on Sunday.

Mar 13, 2015 Missed 3 games (disciplinary).
