Corvo calls out Ottawa's Turris after cheap shot

WILMINGTON, Mass. Joe Corvo isnt happy about the flying elbow he absorbed from Kyle Turris in the third period of Saturday nights win over the Ottawa Senators. Hes even more perturbed that Turris wasn't suspended by the NHL.

A visibly angry Corvo said that he expected Turris to answer the ball when the Bruins and Senators meet at TD Garden on Tuesday night for the home-and-home rematch. Perhaps its best that the two players settle things in the old time hockey way with the players sorting their own affairs out.

Corvo said hes been walking around with a headache for two days, but avoided serious injury when Turris left his skates and smashed Corvos head with his raised elbow. Turris obviously managed to get off scot-free when Brendan Shanahan opined that it was neither intentional nor reckless.

Corvo disagrees.

Lets just say Ill be looking for him right off the bat, said Corvo. Im not happy. Two days Ive been walking around with a headache. Just because I didnt lay down on the ice and get carted off and miss a period . . . I dont know . . . it doesnt mean that it wasnt a cheap shot.

In my opinion he saw my numbers and took the opportunity to seek revenge for the game prior when we were at home. Hopefully hes a man and hell step up tomorrow when I come after him. Im not going to try and hurt him, but I want to fight him.

Corvo isnt a fighter in fact he got into his first NHL scrap earlier this season with the Bruins and clearly neither is Turris. So the Bs defenseman felt that dropping the gloves to settle their differences is the honorable thing.

I think so. It was a cheap shot. From what I heard I stayed on the ice for a second, but from what I was told he stayed on the ice and acted like he was hurt, said Corvo. It was just another indicator he felt like he was wrong and was afraid somebody else was going to going to get him while sticking up for me.
