Nazem Kadri Suspended 3 Games for Boarding Bruins' Tommy Wingels

Maple Leafs Nazem Kadri's dangerous hit has no place in hockey

The first hit occurred behind the Maple Leafs net where Kadri caught Tommy Wingels facing the boards.

Kadri was assessed a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct at 8:18 of the third period Thursday after leaving his feet and driving the head of Wingels, who was on his knees, into the boards. "He was turning up the wall, so I was committed to the hit".

The Bruins dominated the Leafs in Game 1, winning 5-1. It happened pretty quick, and I think he was reaching for the puck. "This is a forceful and illegal hit delivered on a defenseless opponent for the goal of retribution and message-sending".

Paul Ryan just endorsed the man he wants to become his successor
In order to be elected speaker, a candidate must secure a majority of the votes of the House of Representatives. Taking the party position as Speaker could damage McCarthy's standing with his constituents, said Garamendi.

The NHL Department of Player Safety is already taking heat for ambiguous suspension rulings three days into the Stanley Cup playoffs, but the league left little doubt this time.

Kadri said he believes it would have been a clean hit if Wingels had not fallen to the ice. On second look, it does appear that Kadri actually got Wingels from the side, but regardless of the technicalities, the Leafs forward sat two minutes for boarding. The only Maple Leafs players with more were James van Riemsdyk (36) and Auston Matthews (34). He will miss the next three games of his team's first round playoff series against the Bruins.
