Nazem Kadri didn't think his hip-check on Alex Ovechkin in Game 5 was dirty.
"It’s not like I stuck my knee out or got my arms high or anything like that," Kadri said, per the Toronto Sun. "It happened pretty quick. I thought it was okay. Glad he came back, but he was running around a little bit when he came back so he must have been fine." Ovechkin was forced to leave the game late in the first period, but he returned in the second frame. You can watch the hit by clicking the link below. Apr 22 - 10:50 AM

Nazem Kadri has made quite the impression on head coach Mike Babcock.

Kadri had a terrific regular season that saw him put up a career-high 32 goals and 61 points. But beyond what he brings offensively, Kadri has also found a way to become an effective player without the puck. "It’s just a different person," Babcock said. "(My team) played against Toronto a lot and nothing against Naz, but we wouldn’t concern ourselves too much with him. Naz is now a guy who can play really well without the puck and he’s nasty. That helps him be the player he is and he scored some goals this year as well."

Nazem Kadri is on pace to top 30 goals this season.

That's impressive considering he has hit the 20-goal mark once in his career. Kadri already has 18 goals and 31 points in 44 matches. "The one thing I've learned is, it's not about the power of the shot, necessarily. It's about the quickness," he said. "I've been really just trying to get the puck on and off my stick as quickly as possible, especially in tight, and trying to elevate the puck because goalies are just so good athletically." Kadri usually takes on the assignment of shutting down the best lines of the opposition, but that hasn't prevented him from being involved offensively. He has been red hot this month with five goals and five assists in the last nine contests.
