Raffi Torres Hits Eberle

04/06/2011 at 2:04am EDT

Big hit from Raffi Torres on Jordan Eberle leads to this fight between Torres and Ryan O`Marra:

The color analyst on Sportsnet comments that this hit is a “goodbye to the first round” for Torres, adding “This hit is exactly the kind of hit they`re trying to get rid of”.

Dan Murphy (via Sportsnet Pacific) on his Twitter):

If Torres gets any games for that it will be 2.

Torres felt Eberle leaned down at the last second reaching for puck which turned shoulder to shoulder into shoulder to head.

Torres: “I thought it was a clean hit. If I don’t make that hit I’ll be out of a job.”


Update 9:10pm PT: A breakdown from NHL Network.
