    An annotated guide to this morning’s must-read hockey stories:

    • His 10-game suspension served, serial headhunter Patrick Kaleta was eligible to return to the Buffalo Sabres’ lineup yesterday. Instead, he found himself on waivers. Darcy Regier’s message: go to the minors and clean up your act. The move won’t be well received in Buffalo where Kaleta has pockets of intense fans, but it’s absolutely the right statement for the team to make.

    • Bucky Gleason disagrees with that assessment.

    BOSTON — The Boston Bruins beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 on Wednesday to take a 1-0 lead in their first-round series. Here’s a breakdown of the action from TD Garden.

    • The Bruins’ so-called energy line has been their best line on some nights. The combination of Gregory Campbell, Daniel Paille and Shawn Thornton gave Boston its first goal of the night and logged significant minutes throughout, in part as an answer to Toronto coach Randy Carlyle’s decision to play Colton Orr and his fourth line for 13 shifts. In eight minutes, Orr amassed 16 minutes of penalties. “They seem to relish that role,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said of his fourth-liners. “Two years ago, I played them against the Sedin twins.

    But this one doesn’t fall on the on-ice officials.

    This time it was the league’s video review team that botched it, taking away an apparent game-tying goal from Toronto’s Tyler Bozak. Take a look at the video above, and then read the official ruling below, courtesy of the NHL’s Situation Room Blog:

    At 18:44 of the second period in the Hurricanes/Maple Leafs game, video review determined that Toronto forward Tyler Bozak directed the puck into the net with his right skate. According to rule 49.2 “A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who uses a distinct kicking motion to propel the puck into the net.” No goal Toronto.
