Nazem Kadri suspended remainder of first round for vicious cross-check

Maple Leafs’ Nazem Kadri Facing In-Person Hearing For Cross-Check On Jake DeBrusk

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri is making it very hard to walk that line. Kadri skated over to DeBrusk and hit the Bruins forward in the head with his stick. Even playing without Nazem Kadri, who was suspended earlier Monday for the rest of the first round and watched from the Scotiabank Arena press box, there was a confidence to the way the Leafs managed the puck and put the Bruins on their heels with blazing speed.

Shortly after the game, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced that Kadri will have an in-person hearing for his actions, which led to a 5-minute major penalty in the third period Saturday night. He could receive a suspension of five games or more.

NBC Sports Washington analyst Alan May said prior to Game 3 that the play was risky and should be one that's kept out of the league, and therefore, the punishment should have been more severe.

Kadri's and Babcock's future in doubt? Any time you cross the line, though, you have a chance to let someone else make the decision whether you play or not.

"Every night you get a set of four officials (including linesmen)", Babcock said. You've got to own your play, you've got to own your discipline, you've got to own what's going on for you. He received a three-game suspension during last year's playoffs - against the Boston Bruins as well.

Promoted to the first power-play unit because of Kadri's suspension, Johnsson made it 3-1 with his first-career playoff goal with 2:48 left in the period when he roofed a backhand over Rask after a nice feed from Tavares as Toronto connected for a second time on the man advantage after going 0 for 4 in the first two games. That means a maximum five-game ban for Kadri. "We've just got to move on".

You go to the bottom and you can't get the drive to clear them and getting to the outside is pretty tough", he said. Jumping past Clint Bowyer for second spot, the No. 22 had less than five laps to reel in leader Truex.

Boston kept up the pressure with Rask on the bench for the extra attacker, but Toronto held on despite some tense moments late - including two key blocks from Marner - to take a 2-1 series lead.

The Bruins are 5-2 in their last 7 meetings with the Maple Leafs and 15-5 in their last 20 games following a win while the home team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings between these sides. At the 14:03 mark of the third period, Kadri cross checked Boston Bruins forward Jake Debrusk in the throat area. However, things took a dramatic shift for the 2013 Leafs when they went on to lose two at home, allowing 9 goals and being pushed to the brink of elimination. "It's our turn to come out with a push". None of them offered positive news for Kadri and the Leafs.

Matthews, who had just two points against the Bruins in the 2018 post-season, picked up the second assist to match his total from previous year. Last spring, Tomas Plekanec and Dominic Moore - both no longer National Hockey League players - lined up as options behind Matthews.

Inserted into the lineup after getting healthy scratched for Game 1, veteran winger David Backes was first to a loose puck behind Toronto's net before feeding Coyle in front to bury a shot past Frederik Andersen, who was terrific in making 37 saves, for a 1-0 lead just 4:44 in. As a bonus, they showed that they can at least slow the deadly line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, and David Pastrnak, as that trio was unable to generate a single point on Monday.

Here's what we know.
