The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to have to reevaluate some things before Game 2 of their series against the Boston Bruins, after the 5-1 shellacking they took in a Game 1 loss. The defensive pairing of Morgan Rielly and Ron Hainsey was eaten alive, for example. But there's also the issue of center Nazem Kadri, who was given a game misconduct for a third-period charge against Tommy Wingels – an idiotic, intentional hit to a prone player that should get him suspended for at least Game 2, perhaps more.

The NHL Players Association has signed off on the GM's proposed change to the coach's challenge for goalie interference, giving the final decision on video reviews to NHL hockey operations' Situation Room instead of on-ice officials. The NHLPA Competition Committee Members – Michael Cammalleri (Edmonton Oilers), Ron Hainsey (Toronto Maple Leafs), Kevin Shattenkirk (New York Rangers), Cory Schneider (New Jersey Devils), and Daniel Winnik (Minnesota Wild) – and other players approved the change. "First and foremost, the players want consistency in the application of the rule, and therefore support this proposed change in order to help accomplish that goal," said Mathieu Schneider, NHLPA Special Assistant to the Executive Director. The measure now only needs Board of Governors approval.
