Nazem Kadri cheap-shots Jake DeBrusk with crosscheck to the face


Nazem Kadri can expect a suspension to come his way.

Kadri and Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk went at it throughout Saturday night's Game 2 matchup, but the Maple Leafs forward took it too far in the third period. After DeBrusk put a hit on Patrick Marleau, Kadri retaliated with a cheap crosscheck to DeBrusk's face.

Kadri received a game-misconduct. Fortunately, DeBrusk skated off the ice under his own power and appeared to be OK after the scary incident.

This isn't Kadri's first time pulling something like this against the Bruins. In last year's first-round series, he was suspended three games for a dirty hit on Tommy Wingels.

The Bruins earned a 4-1 victory to even the series at 1 heading into Toronto.
