Leafs' Kadri to have in-person hearing for Game 2 cross-check

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

Kadri was not made available after the game.

Columbus and St. Louis have surprised many by winning the first two games on the road to take a commanding lead in their first-round series against Tampa Bay and Winnipeg.

Kadri was ejected from Saturday's Game 2 after delivering a nasty cross-check to the face of Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk, who had just finished his check on Patrick Marleau.

The real issue started near the end of the second period.

DeBrusk then went after Leafs defenceman Travis Dermott near the benches, punching the rookie blue-liner repeatedly in a sequence that didn't result in a penalty.

Kadri did not speak with the media following Saturday's game, a 4-1 Bruins victory to even the series at 1-1.

"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". 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.

The NHL Department of Player Safety announced a few minutes after midnight via Twitter that Kadri has been offered an in-person hearing, with date and time to be determined.

Mar 13, 2015 Missed 3 games (disciplinary).

Considering Kadri's suspension history, including when he was suspended for three games in the opening round against the Bruins last spring, a lengthy forced sit-down from the league could be on the way. 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.

It appears as though Kadri could sit out the remaining games of this series.

"Their intensity was at a different level", said Toronto head coach Mike Babcock, whose team won the opener by the same 4-1 score.

During the game, the refereeing was a topic of conversation - on one side more than the other.

"It was a game, it was a physical game, the referees (Brad Meier and Trevor Hanson), the way they reffed the game, let a lot of stuff go".

Late in the second period, with the Leafs trailing 3-0, Kadri got penalized for hooking. Frederik Andersen played another incredible game, but his efforts were wasted by another poor effort from his team.

He'll take that meeting in NY on Monday, which obviously will keep him out of Game 3 that night in Toronto.

The Leafs are looking at life without him, as they'll need to find a way to finally defeat the Bruins without one of their most important forwards in the lineup.
