Bruins Ride Momentum From Game 3 To A 2-1 Series Lead

BOSTON MA- APRIL 13 Nazem Kadri of the Toronto Maple Leafs reacts after a fight with Jake De Brusk of the Boston Bruins in Game Two of the Eastern Conference First Round during the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at TD Garden 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri may face another postseason suspension, this time for cross-check

Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri has been suspended for the remainder of the first round for his cross-check to the face of Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk in Game 2 of the teams' first-round series, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced after an in-person hearing Monday.

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

Boston tied their series with Toronto 1-1 following their 4-1 win, while the Leafs' Nazem Kadri was ejected late in the 3rd period for an illegal cross check.

The problem is that he has to actually be on the ice for any of that to matter, and he continues to take himself out of the lineup because of the often times risky and reckless style of game that he plays.

After watching DeBrusk chase down Toronto's Patrick Marleau and slam the 39-year-old into the curved glass at the end of the bench, Kadri unleashed a vicious cross-check to DeBrusk's face, resulting in a major penalty and game misconduct.

"We didn't play to our identity in Game 1. We've got to regroup and get ready to play". Unlike Game 2, when they crumbled under the withering Boston fore-checking, the Leafs managed to withstand the early Bruins push and get the better of the scoring chances in the first half of the period.

How did we get here? The Leafs' fourth line of Moore, Frederik Gauthier and Tyler Ennis were effective all night with a couple of grinding shifts in the offensive zone.

Kadri scored 16 goals and added 28 assists in 73 regular-season games for the Leafs in 2018-19.

While regular season success is hardly a marker of postseason success, it's important to note that the 2013 Toronto Maple Leafs clinched their playoff spot a few games from the end of their 48-game season, which was shortened due to a lockout.

What is more useful for the purposes of this investigation is the numbers that a very similar Leafs team posted last year against a very similar Bruins team, and this year has seen a world of improvement over those statistics.

Rask stopped John Tavares later in the period, but the Leafs centre was checked into the Bruins goalie by defenceman Charlie McAvoy.

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.

Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock was impressed with Marner's willingness to sacrifice his own body in the dying minutes of the game.

Despite their subpar statistics, that team was able to win games 3, 5, and 6 to push the series to seven games, and very almost took the series and moved on.

Toronto got a power play five minutes into the third, but could do nothing until Kadri broke Rask's shutout bid on a deflection at 10:44. "Ideally all those things are contagious". "Sticks up for his teammates".

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

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. He is an excellent third line center and is under a good contract.
