Playoff hockey is here and so are the dirty hits.  During Game 2 of the Maple Leafs and Bruins series on Saturday, Nazem Kadri and Jake DeBrusk traded dirty hits.

They were each hit with roughing penalties for an exchange the two had early in the game.  Then DeBrusk knocked Kadri out of the game after a nasty knee-on-knee hit.

Kadri stepped up the dirty hits with a cross-check to DeBrusk’s face. 

Kadri’s shot will probably earn him a suspension.  When he returns you can expect some more fireworks.  This back-and-forth is far from over.
