Toronto Maple Leafs centre Nazem Kadri became public enemy No. 1 — again — in Boston after delivering a brutal cross-check to the head of Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk in the third period of Game 2.
The Toronto pivot, who was suspended for the remainder of the series for his tomfoolery, will head back to TD Garden in Boston for the first time since the incident and, to the surprise of exactly zero people, he won’t find himself all that welcome.
He will, however, find himself occupying some lamp posts outside of the Bruins’ home digs.

Kadri’s latest offence came a year after he was banned three games during last year’s Bruins-Leafs series for an egregious hit on Tommy Wingels.
These teams and fanbases gloriously despise each other right now, and what’s a little rivalry without some quality signage?
(Even if it isn’t all that original.)
