Bruins blast Maple Leafs in violent Game 2

Bruins blast Maple Leafs in violent Game 2

Kadri was suspended three games.

National Hockey League first-round playoff action on Monday evening and a pair of teams from the Atlantic Division will square off as the Boston Bruins tangle with the Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario.

"It was kind of in a blind spot for us on the bench", winger Zach Hyman said. "That's just it. Skill is a wonderful thing; will is more important at this time of year and determination". "It's just we got to do as best we can at controlling the emotion and just focusing on what really matters and that's play between the whistles".

However, in Game 2, the Bruins went back to their game of physicality and skill and displayed way more discipline than the Leafs, specifically forward Nazem Kadri, who crossed the line one too many times, the worst being a cross-check to the face of Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk. I think it will be a physical series from here on out. "I got no comment on that". "He's a proud guy, he doesn't want to be taking suspensions because he knows we need him". You appreciate his passion and he brings a lot to our locker room.

So, regarding any potential revenge for DeBrusk - whether it be for his knee-on-knee collision with Kadri, his hit on veteran Patrick Marleau, or elbow on Leafs defenseman Travis Dermott - on the part of a Leafs team not exactly built on revenge, No. 74 is just focused on keeping his head on a swivel.

Going into the postseason, I published a story about how the NHL Playoffs offer terrific opportunity for bettors who hunt for value, rather than just picking the team they think will win.

The Leafs now have to regroup for Monday's Game 3 at Scotiabank Arena, likely minus one of their most influential players, especially at this time of year.

Orioles' Davis singles in 1st, ending record hitless streak
Boston Red Sox fans had a cruel chant for Chris Davis during Friday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles . Not only did he snap the historic streak, but he gave the Orioles an early 2-0 lead over the Red Sox .

Officiating - Chris Rooney and Kyle Rehman will work Monday's game - was a hot topic in the morning.

You saw Babcock immediately make a line at the start of the game which made it known he was not a fan of the matchup at the start, he allowed Cassidy to realize that he can dictate the way the game was going to go. "There's a rulebook, but they're all judgment calls, right?" No one person is going to have the same decision as another over a span of 60 minutes.

"It is what it is and you have to play within the game. We feel like depth on this team is something we have and we can take advantage of". Some will argue that Debrusk made knee-to-knee contact with Kadri earlier in the game.

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 NHL, if it so decides, could levy a suspension of six games or more considering the hearing is not being done by phone.

There are some who have been speculating about Mike Babcock's future as the Maple Leafs head coach if they were to have another first-round exit.

A Foggy Jake DeBrusk spoke to reporters after the game but would not discuss the hit and sais he doesn't even really remember it. Kadri was suspended three games during last year's Round 1 series; will he involuntarily take a seat again?
