Last night the Toronto Maple Leafs played the Tampa Bay Lightning in what turned into a frustrating start to the playoffs for the Maple Leafs.

Just 2 minutes into the game, the Lightning 4th line scored the series opening goal, and they never looked back from there.

In the second period, Erik Cernak received an interference penalty for hitting Michael Bunting after the whistle, and later in the period, Bunting returned the favour, but took it a little too far.

Bunting delivered a head shot to an unsuspecting Cernak, which got Bunting a match penalty and a meeting with the Department of Player Safety today.




It has now officially been announced that Michael Bunting has been suspended:

Toronto's Michael Bunting has been suspended for 3 playoff games for an Illegal Check to the Head and Interference against Tampa Bay's Erik Cernak.
