  Nazem Kadri suspended three games for boarding Tommy Wingels Nazem Kadri has been suspended three games by the NHL for boarding Tommy Wingels during the third period of Game 1 between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins on Thursday. Kadri’s Leafs were trailing the Bruins 4-1 late in the game when the forward saw Boston’s Zdeno Chara and Tommy Wingels hit Mitch Marner by the boards. He did not like an elbow from Wingels to Marner, so he charged at Wingels and drove his head into the boards.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are in a tough spot. They’ve simply been outplayed in their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Boston Bruins, and unless something changes quickly, their postseason will be ending sooner rather than later.They were knocked around 5-1 in Game 1 before getting trounced 7-3 in Game 2. Now, they’re back in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre, hoping to turn things around and salvage their season.And like many teams do this time of year, the Leafs placed rally towels on the seats of the ACC, but they elected to go white towels, which sure seems like a symbol for waving the white flag of surrender.Take a look and judge for yourself.
Ironic.

Of course, many not too encouraged by the Leafs’ chances weighed in on the color choice on Twitter.
