Is Nazem Kadri the Next Tom Wilson?

Is Nazem Kadri the Next Tom Wilson?

The NHL Department of Player Safety on Sunday announced that Toronto's Nazem Kadri will have his in-person meeting regarding his cross-check to the next of the Bruins' Jake DeBrusk on Monday afternoon in NY.

Babcock said if Kadri, who has already been suspended four times in his career, is indeed forced to the sidelines, either Nylander or Marleau will move to centre on the third line behind Matthews and Tavares. 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.

Kadri was then felled by a knee-on-knee hit - again from DeBrusk - that resulted in him limping off before he eventually returned to the fray.

Kadri also missed time against Boston in the playoffs past year for a hit against Tommy Wingels. He might not have a choice if Kadri is suspended.

Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley get ejected in Warriors' Game 1 win
On Saturday, his job was to annoy Kevin Durant , and while Durant had 23 points on 8-for-16 shooting, Beverley still had some fun. Beverley immediately jumped to his feet to confront Durant as official Ed Malloy got between them and immediately ejected them.


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.

We'll have to wait and see, and the same goes for Krug, and possibly other players who might have gotten roughed up in a very rough Game 2. When asked about the infraction, Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said he didn't see it and has not yet reviewed it.

The NHL Department of Player Safety has offered Kadri an in-person hearing for the hit.

Every Leafs line had trouble with every Bruins group they saw.

Nepal: At least three killed in airplane collision in Solukhumbu
Three people were killed and four others injured when a small passenger plane collided with a parked helicopter in Nepal Sunday. The crash occurred while the Summit Air plane was trying to take off from Lukla for Kathmandu , said aviation officials.


Boston hit everything in sight, jumping out to 3-0 lead in the second period before Kadri scored midway through the third, about four minutes before his cross-check on DeBrusk. Though Marleau was fine, Kadri immediately jumped in to retaliate against DeBrusk and cross-checked him in the face.

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. In the second period, DeBrusk collided with Kadri in what appeared to be a knee-on-knee hit. Any comeback hopes ended, however, after Kadri's play, which merited a game misconduct and a major power play on which Patrice Bergeron added Boston's final goal.

"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. There was no penalty on the play. I think you'll like his answer. Obviously Kadri stayed down. Looking back on it, shoulder to shoulder.

"I don't get that surprised at playoff time".
