Nazem Kadri did not get his playoffs started on a good note. More

Nazem Kadri has been suspended three games by the National Hockey League for boarding Tommy Wingels during the third period of Game 1 between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins on Thursday.

The infraction came midway through the third period with the Bruins up 4-1.

Earlier Thursday, the NHL Department of Player Safety suspended the Los Angeles Kings' Drew Doughty one game for an illegal check to the head of the Vegas Golden Knights' William Carrier in Game 1.

Kadri has a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Friday and could face a suspension under the charge of boarding/charging. Kadri was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct.

The first two days of the Stanley Cup playoffs have seen multiple instances of unsafe play, with Kings defenseman Drew Doughty suspended one game for an illegal hit and Blue Jackets' winger Josh Anderson ejected after running Capitals' defenseman Michal Kempny into the boards.

"I just felt like (Wingels) made contact with Mitchy's head to start, and I didn't see a call there", Kadri said of the hit postgame.

"I certainly wasn't trying to hit him while he was down like that". "[Wingels] was turning up the wall, so I was coming into the hit, and then he ended up falling. I think this day and age we've had other guys that have missed some extended periods of time with some head injuries, so I think we may lay on the side of caution".

This is Kadri's fourth career suspension. The only Maple Leafs players with more were James van Riemsdyk (36) and Auston Matthews (34).

The Bruins already dominated puck possession as Game 1 went along with Kadri in the lineup.
