Stanley Cup 2019: Toronto Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri facing suspension

Nazem Kadri

Toronto will play Boston at home in Game 3 Monday, and DeBrusk will be in the lineup. Some will argue that Debrusk made knee-to-knee contact with Kadri earlier in the game. Boston bounced back in game two with a solid 4-1 win and will now be looking to grab back their home-ice advantage with a win in this one. Johnsson made a lovely setup pass to Matthews at the left faceoff dot and he ripped his famous one-timer past Rask for his first goal of the series. "It's going to be the same game plan, the level's just going to be ramped up because it's playoffs".

"I've said this before, it feels like an quake under you". The coach explained in post-game press conference that the detail in Johnsson's approach was lost through Games 1 and 2 in Boston, and that his play had suffered for it. David Krejci and Charlie Coyle scored for Boston. Tuukka Rask stopped 31 shots for visitors in front of a crowd of 19,611 at Scotiabank Arena. DeBrusk delivered a hard hit on Toronto's Patrick Marleau, crushing him against the stanchion at the players' bench. But we're right there, we had some opportunities to tie it up late.

This year's team may only have clinched a few games before the season's close, but they've been all but a sure thing since midseason. However, since the suspension is for fewer than six games, he's ineligible to eventually take his case to a neutral arbitrator in an effort to get it reduced.

The Stanley Cup Playoffs present a very fine line between justified criticism of a player or team, and diving head-first into hot-takery and irrational overreactions. The Leafs' fourth line of Moore, Frederik Gauthier and Tyler Ennis were effective all night with a couple of grinding shifts in the offensive zone.

That cannot happen, not only because it is a frightful way to play the game, but also because the Maple Leafs need him. Rask went tumbling backwards, but stayed in the game after stretching out his neck and left shoulder. Matthews scored at 10:12 after taking a Johnsson feed on the power play, breaking through on his 11th shot and 23rd attempt of the series and lifting a monkey off his back in the process. Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner are both riding career-high seasons and entering the playoffs healthy and confident. The Maple Leafs found themselves down 2-0 after the first period before William Nylander handed Danton Heinen a gift on the forecheck to make it a three-goal deficit. 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.

An in-person hearing means the league has the option to suspend Kadri for more than five games.

"It's disappointing for Naz, it's disappointing for our team", Babcock said. At the 14:03 mark of the third period, Kadri cross checked Boston Bruins forward Jake Debrusk in the throat area.

Note: Game 5 is set for Friday in Boston. Freddie Andersen had a 6.65 goals against average and a.822 save percentage after two games last spring. Bruins defenceman Connor Clifton sat out with an undisclosed injury, while winger Marcus Johansson missed a second consecutive game with an illness.
