Nazem Kadri And Mike Babcock's Future In Doubt?

2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri may face another postseason suspension, this time for cross-check

2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri may face another postseason suspension, this time for cross-check

TSN Toronto reporter Mark Masters checks in daily with news and notes on the Maple Leafs. They were powerless to stop it.

While the Toronto Maple Leafs didn't have a flawless performance in Game 1, they did more than enough to earn the victory over the Boston Bruins.

DeBrusk said he underwent tests after the game and is still waiting for the results.

Cassidy said the majority of the heavy hits have been clean and that's what playoffs are "a war of attrition ... just play hard between the whistles". "In the end that cost us". There he sparked a comeback effort with a deflection goal.

Grabbing the win in game two was Tuukka Rask, who stopped 30 of the 31 shots that he faced.

"We didn't play to our identity in Game 1".

"It looked like a cross-check to the face", Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. Attack when you have the chance.

"We hit a lot of check lists. Basically let them know how we're going to play".

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. 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. "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".

The Leafs neutralized Boston's top line of Marchand, Bergeron and David Pastrnak at 5 on 5 in their 4-1 victory in Game 1, while also using their superior quickness to expose 42-year-old defenceman Zdeno Chara.

There would be no repeat on this night.

The refereeing of Brad Meier and Trevor Hanson in Game 2 wasn't exactly brilliant, for either the Leafs or the Bruins, and Babcock had an interesting answer when asked whether he was surprised with what was not called during the game.

April 13, 2018 Suspended by the National Hockey League for 3 games. Kadri looked to be injured but no penalty was called on DeBrusk.

"I can always be better", Matthews said. "We weathered the storm as well as we could".

Boston went up by two on another Toronto defensive miscue at 16:04 when Jake Muzzin whiffed on the puck with his glove in the neutral zone. What concerns you the most and can the Leafs overcome it with the next two games at home.

But he wore goat horns in Game 2, losing the puck at the side of Toronto's net for an easy Boston tap-in that made it 3-0 in the second period.

The Bruins and Leafs play next on Monday night.

DeBrusk delivered a hard hit on Toronto's Patrick Marleau, and was standing near the boards when Kadri hit him high with his stick. Obviously Kadri stayed down. 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.

Kadri meanwhile, is likely to be suspended for the rest of the series.

"Naz is a crucial part of our team", Tavares said. "That's just it. Skill is a wonderful thing; will is more important at this time of year and determination".
