    Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri took exception to a big check by Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano and showed his displeasure with a throat slash gesture.

    The situation occurred  near the end of the first period of their Tuesday game at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Kadri had his head down as he entered the Calgary zone and Giordano exploded into the young forward.

    At the bench, Kadri was caught by cameras making the gesture at Giordano. According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, NHL hockey operations director Colin Campbell is “reviewing” the Kadri gesture.

    In 2010, the league suspended then-Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Nick Boynton one game for a throat slash gesture toward Blair Jones of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane believed he beat Florida Panthers defenseman Alex Petrovic in their first two fights during their game against each other. And Kane wanted to publicly let the First Niagara Center crowd know exactly how he felt. 

    After their second tussle, Kane appeared pumped up, and flashed a sign with his hands, denoting he was ‘2-0’ against Petrovic in their two brawls. Kane and Petrovic would go one more time. Kane would receive a game misconduct for their third fight. It was the first time the same players hooked up for three fights in one game since Bob Probert and Jody Shelly on Jan. 10, 2002.

    Here is their first fight, which came almost two minutes into the second period.

    Here is their final fight of the evening midway through the third. 

    Kane finished the game, a 7-4 loss to Florida, with 29 penalty minutes and one goal. His final fight came shortly after his goal at the 10:14 mark of the third period. 

    Petrovic scored a goal, added an assist and also had 29 penalty minutes.
