I really doubt the Bruins would try and run Turris the whole game if it was a real bad hit ok but this was not a bad hit.
I agree that it's not that bad of a hit, thats not my point, its the "big bad bruins" were talking about. They probably think their reputation is on the line if they don't do something.
If Corvo hadn't *****ed so much about the hit I dont think anything would happen, maybe a fight, maybe not. But with him going to the media you know hes *****ing about it 100x as much to his teamates.
I know when I played hockey, you had to fight for a hit like that, no matter the intention. So if Turris gets it out of the way he saves himself the torment later (but I'm down for a line brawl)

Senators coach Paul MacLean said he had no problem with the hit or Phaneuf retaliation.
“That’s the way I used to do it,” said MacLean. “If you have an issue with someone on the ice, that’s why fighting is in the game.
“I thought the play by Foligno was a penalty and I thought the way they settled it was just great.”
Exactly my point, that's old school hockey. This is a mens game, Turris left his feet and hit a guy in the head, so he has to fight for it. You've seen Neil and other players do it countless times, its just the way things go.
Corvo can shut his damn mouth with his ****ing ass face! I've never seen someone so ugly with and helmet on he's a ****ing ***, can't take a hit! saying Turris hit him in the numbers gotta be kidding ? it was the elbow to the head stupid bum and it was well deserved selfish *****
They should just meet up by the flag poles outside of the TD Garden at 3:30 before the game. The rest of the teams can gather around yelling "fight!" "fight!" "fight!" and once Corvo is done acting like a child they can get back to playing some hockey.
I'm with the folks hoping they just drop the gloves right off the bat. These games down the stretch are too important to be distracted by some guy complaining about a hit. Then again I don't think it is a fair trade-off to have Ottawa's second line center sit out for five minutes in exchange for Joe Corvo.
