Toronto Maple Leafs looking to go up 2-0 on Boston Bruins

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

Brad Marchand and Charlie Coyle scored during a raucous opening period as the Boston Bruins downed Toronto 4-1 on Saturday to even the teams' first-round playoff series at one game apiece. Kadri was also suspended four games in April 2016 for cross-checking. The Bruins will likely have to answer for the hit Jake Debrusk put on veteran forward Patrick Marleau, and while Nazem Kadri got his revenge and will likely serve a suspension for his cheap shot cross check, expect there to be some fireworks early on in this bitter rivalry.

"The only problem with Kadri's hit [on DeBrusk] is he didn't take the top f-ing row of DeBrusk's teeth out", Avery said. Just past year, Kadri earned himself a three-game suspension for boarding then-Bruins forward Tommy Wingels in Game 1 of the clubs' first-round playoff series. Demott's one-timer hit two players - the second being Kadri, who redirected it to the far side of the net.

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.

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

DeBrusk said he underwent tests after the game and is still waiting for the results.

During the second period, Kadri was shaken up by a knee-to-knee collision with Jake DeBrusk. When asked about the infraction, Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said he didn't see it and has not yet reviewed it. Boston won the season series with the Maple Leafs, posting wins in three of four meetings, but owns a dismal 2-7 straight-up record in its last nine trips to Toronto, according to the OddsShark NHL Database.

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.

"It's time for f-ing Auston Matthews to wake up", Avery said. Though Marleau was fine, Kadri immediately jumped in to retaliate against DeBrusk and cross-checked him in the face. 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.

"As a kid I just always stirred it up like that and always thought it tastes better", said the 21-year-old. "Obviously, Kadri stayed down, I mean that's his prerogative when you get hit". No penalty was called.

To the surprise of some, Kadri returned for the third period.
