Leafs' Kadri offered in-person hearing for cross-checking Bruins' DeBrusk

Bruins need to win more faceoffs to have success vs. Maple Leafs

When news came down quickly after Saturday night's game that Nazem Kadri was offered an in-person hearing with the NHL's department of player safety, it was an ominous sign.

The Bruins' top line racked up 20 points over the first two games of last year's first-round matchup with Toronto, and remain key to the club's chances of advancing to the second round and paying out as reduced -120 favorites on the National Hockey League playoff series prices. Jake DeBrusk did not practice on Wednesday after getting banged around on Thursday, but the sophomore winger took the morning skate on Saturday and will be a game-time decision.

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

The 28-year-old has been suspended four times for a total of 14 games in his career, including that trio playoff contests.

Despite rumors of Facebook integrating messaging services, the company reportedly intends to keep individual apps to exist. Jane Manchun Wong has shared everything on the microblogging website, Twitter through his official Twitter handle.


The Leafs will be looking to rebound Monday following a physical and emotional Game 2 that saw the Bruins come out swinging - literally and figuratively - following a sub-par performance in Toronto's emphatic 4-1 victory in the opener.

Boston will make at least one lineup change, as head coach Bruce Cassidy indicated that veteran David Backes will play in Game 2. We've got to be much better, we understand that, we know that.

Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri could be facing yet another postseason suspension. If you try to hit him, it seems like he can slide checks, create plays.

Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock didn't see the hit in question. Boston won the season series with the Maple Leafs, posting wins in three of four meetings, but owns a dismal 2-7 straight-up record in its last nine trips to Toronto, according to the OddsShark NHL Database.

He said the threat for severe weather is greatest at such times but that the risk remained even after warm temperatures dropped. At least 11 tornadoes have touched down in three different states as a result of a stronger-than-usual storm system.


This time around, the Leafs have Auston Matthews and John Tavares down the middle ahead of Kadri. "I talked to the ref, he said he dropped him, and it was just a big hit".

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

Said Cassidy: "I thought it was clean".

"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". I got no comment.
