Nazem Kadri ejected from Game 2 after cross-check to Jake DeBrusk

Nazem Kadri ejected from Game 2 after cross-check to Jake DeBrusk”

The Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to follow the trend of the St. Louis Blues and the Columbus Blue Jackets by taking a 2-0 series lead, but have to expect a more energetic opponent in the Boston Bruins in Game 2 of the best-of-seven first round series at TD Garden on Saturday.

The Bruins and Maple Leafs will take the ice for Game 3 on Monday night in Toronto. Kadri looked to be injured but no penalty was called on DeBrusk.

Kadri was not made available to the media following the game.

Kadri and DeBrusk have developed something of a personal rivalry over the course of this young series, with the two getting tangled up Game 1 and exchanging words from their respective benches.

The Department of Player Safety factors a player's history into its discipline. His other suspensions have included four games for an illegal hit in 2015 and three games for goalie interference in 2013. But when you look at that play again, Kadri sort of causes the knee contact himself as he clearly tries to move out of the way of DeBrusk's shoulder. NHL Player Safety has already tweeted that Kadri has been offered an in-person hearing. "If he's still standing up, there isn't anything wrong on that, but he fell".

Kadri caught Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk with a cross-check to the head with around six minutes remaining in the third period of Game 2.

During the second period, Kadri was shaken up by a knee-to-knee collision with Jake DeBrusk. Some may point to that as a "We're even" for DeBrusk in his growing feud with Kadri.

Speaking of ice, Marner was also asked about a video from the NHL's "Stanley Cup Confidential" series posted to Twitter that showed him mixing ice cream and chocolate sauce into a soupy mess as part of his pre-game preparations.

"Judging by the way Naz went down, it didn't seem great", Toronto defenseman Morgan Rielly said".

Said Cassidy: "I thought it was clean". I'm just hoping they come back negative. But you know which one I'm referring to.

Kadri returned in the third period and scored Toronto's lone goal.
