Leafs head home looking to regroup with Kadri's status in limbo

David Backes is in which means things went sideways for the Bruins

Kadri has been offered an in-person hearing, which is usually a precursor to a lengthy suspension.

He'll take that meeting in NY on Monday, which obviously will keep him out of Game 3 that night in Toronto. Kadri was able to return in the third period, and actually scored Toronto's only goal, but was ejected after an ugly, high hit on DeBrusk. Patrice Bergeron scored on the resulting power play, and the Bruins won the game, tying the series 1-1. He declined to speak about the Kadri cross-check.

Kadri and DeBrusk had been battling all game, and emotions began to boil over in the second period when Kadri went down after a knee-on-knee collision with his opponent. When asked about the infraction, Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said he didn't see it and has not yet reviewed it. Kadri was suspended three games during last year's Round 1 series; will he involuntarily take a seat again? If the Bruins carry this effort over to Game 3, the Maple Leafs are going to be in tough, but it feels like things could go either way ... and likely back and forth. Most notably, their storied past includes the invention of "The Avery Rule" after the temperamental winger purposely obstructed the netminder's view in lieu of trying to make an actual play.

But the most controversial moments of violence revolved around Nazem Kadri, and his actions might force him to miss some time, too. Kadri was suspended three games. "He is a young player growing in the National Hockey League and growing at playoff time and these are huge challenges and good challenges for him". If you try to hit him, it seems like he can slide checks, create plays.

"It's time for f-ing Auston Matthews to wake up", Avery said. "If he's still standing up, there isn't anything wrong on that, but he fell".

The hit by Debrusk on Marleau was hard hit, but a player shouldn't have to worry about being cross checked in the face after making a play.

"It was kind of in a blind spot for us on the bench", winger Zach Hyman said. After Kadri got out of the box for another minor - this time for hooking Brad Marchand - he collided knee-on-knee with Debrusk while cutting through the offensive zone.

Kadri received a five-minute major for cross-checking and a game misconduct.

"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".

"They had a push and we weren't really ready for it", Leafs defenceman Jake Muzzin said after the game in the visitors locker-room at TD Garden. I think you'll like his answer. "Looking back on it, shoulder-to-shoulder". Kadri stayed down, skated off on his own and returned for the third.
