Fighting Words From Corvo

from Matt Kalman of The Bruins Blog,

The NHL didn’t hand down any discipline to Ottawa forward Kyle Turris for his hit to the head of Boston’s Joe Corvo Saturday night.

Fortunately for Corvo, he gets a chance at doling out his own discipline just three nights later.

Corvo today after practice at Ristuccia Arena voiced his displeasure with the hit and Turris’ explanation that he slowed down and in an attempt to avoid hitting Corvo from behind instead nailed the blueliner in the head. Now we can expect to see some fireworks when the Bruins host the Senators Tuesday night.

“That’s ridiculous. I think if you look back at the game before [in Boston Jan. 31], I hit him clean in center ice,” said Corvo. “I made it a point not to get my elbow up in his face. But apparently he didn’t give me the same courtesy.

“So, let’s just say I’ll be looking for him right off the bat.”
