There's no doubt that Nazem Kadri was getting roughed up a bit on Tuesday night, but his reaction could land the talented young Toronto Maple Leafs center in a lot of hot water with the league.
Early in the second period against the Calgary Flames, Kadri was the victim of a hard hit in the offensive zone by Flames captain Mark Giordano. Kadri wasn't pleased with the hit, but then he was leveled again by Giordano later on.

Instead of leaving it on the ice, Kadri locked eyes with Giordano and made a gesture he'll surely regret.

Uh, yeah. You can probably expect a fine of some sort from the NHL on that one.
