Nazem Kadri was actually doing a decent job of keeping his cool. 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 also suspended four games in April 2016 for cross-checking.
As a result, Kadri was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct.
Kadri has been offered an in-person hearing, which is usually a precursor to a lengthy suspension.
Kadri will have a hearing with the league, which will give the league a chance to gift him a suspension of six or more games.

The Carolina Hurricanes clawed back from a 2-0 and 3-2 deficit to take their game against the Caps to overtime, but Brooks Orpik provided the game-winner to pull the Caps ahead 2-0 in the series.

"The fact of the matter is that what Kadri did was much, much worse than any other infraction in this game".

"It's disappointing for Naz, disappointing for our team", said Babcock.
"They had a push and we weren't really ready for it", Muzzin said.
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.

It was clear the Bruins were going to try and dominate right off the start and you say them crashing and banging any player in a white jersey. That animosity carried over into Game 2 and they once again got tangled up early in the game.
