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

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

The NHL's department of player safety tweeted early Sunday that Kadri has been offered an in-person hearing, meaning he could be suspended for more than five games. His cross-check on Jake DeBrusk in Game 2, to them, looked an terrible lot like what Kadri did to Luke Glendening three years ago, a play that resulted in a four-game suspension.

The Nazem Kadri issue aside, Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock has enough on his plate heading into Game 3. As the Leafs trailed 3-1 to the Bruins, Kadri sought out DeBrusk after he delivered a hit on Patrick Marleau, then Kadri delivered a cross-check to the winger's face. Kadri left the penalty box, zoomed into the play, stole the puck from David Krecji.and skated right into Jake DeBrusk, whom Kadri had fought in the first period.

DeBrusk said he underwent tests after the game and is still waiting for the results. This would be the fifth time in his career that he's been suspended for an illegal check and the eighth time he's faced discipline from the league - he's been fined three times.

You didn't think the best-of-seven series against the Boston Bruins was going to come as easily as Game 1, did you?

And DeBrusk and Kadri collided later in the period.

Here's what we know.

Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri could be facing yet another postseason suspension.

Since the hit, I've seen a lot of silly whataboutisms on Twitter.

Owners of faulty Nexus 6P phones could get up to $400
Some of you might not remember the Nexus 6P - it came along in 2015 and the 5.7 inch device was worth $500 at the time. The total amount of the settlement is $9.75 million, paid out in cash (as opposed to a rebate on a future purchase).

This time around, the Leafs have Auston Matthews and John Tavares down the middle ahead of Kadri. With that in mind, he wants to see more aggression from the Maple Leafs as the series shifts to Toronto.

Bergeron scored on the ensuing power play at 15:03 to put a bow on Boston's victory as the Leafs now turn their attention to Game 3 - likely without Kadri. Kadri was given a five-minute major for cross-checking and a game misconduct.

"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.

It might not be easy to forecast, and at times it sure looks like it won't be easy on the bodies of players on either team, yet it sure seems like this Round 1 clash will be as exciting and contentious as expected.

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.

"As a kid I just always stirred it up like that and always thought it tastes better", said the 21-year-old. Debrusk didn't receive a penalty on the play. Looking back on it, shoulder to shoulder. I got no comment.

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