Bruins bounce back to down Maple Leafs in Game 2

Mike Augello - Boston to step up physical play in Game 2; Leafs vs. Bruins

Nazem Kadri was given a five-minute major for cross checking and a game misconduct in the third period of Toronto's Game 2 loss to Boston. Kadri was suspended three games.

Kadri and DeBrusk have developed something of a personal rivalry over the course of this young series, with the two getting tangled up Game 1 and exchanging words from their respective benches.

"We need to get into them instead of letting them get into us", Babcock said.

After that run-in in the first period, which landed both players with matching minor penalties, there was another incident in the middle frame.

On Saturday, Kadri took exception with DeBrusk's check on Patrick Marleau late in the game.

When Nazem Kadri cross-checked Jake DeBrusk in the face during the third period, a new tone was set for the rest of the series - one that will most likely see Kadri watching from the ninth floor.

Kadri was then felled by a knee-on-knee hit - again from DeBrusk - that resulted in him limping off before he eventually returned to the fray.

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.

Durant, Beverley ejected after constant trash talk
Beverley sprung up and got in KD's face immediately. "That's what Beverley does", Kerr said. "I can control myself", Durant said. Rivers then provided some assistance by backing up his player and ended up being called for a technical foul.

Mike Babcock wouldn't say what he told Auston Matthews when he pulled him aside at practice before the Leafs started their first-round series against the Bruins.

With Boston taking Game 2 on Saturday night, the best-of-seven series between the teams is now tied 1-1.

That session is set for Monday in NY, just hours before the Leafs and Bruins are scheduled to renew hostilities in Game 3 at Scotiabank Arena. "I was already committed to the hit", Kadri said at the time.

Before five minutes had elapsed, the Bruins scored off a tenacious forecheck when David Backes, a healthy scratch for Game 1, centred to Charlie Coyle, who beat Frederik Andersen at 4:44. No penalty was called on the play.

"I don't get that surprised at playoff time".

"They came out, they played well, and they do that every single time", Leafs defenceman Morgan Rielly said.

"As a kid I just always stirred it up like that and always thought it tastes better", said the 21-year-old.

But the Flames responded when Rasmus Andersson scored his first career playoff goal and Sean Monahan scored late in the third period, and the game looked like it was over.
