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.

Corvo today after practice at Ristuccia Arena voiced his displeasure with the hit and Turris’ explanation that...

Kyle Turris Escapes Suspension for Hit on Joe Corvo, Brendan Shanahan Says Head 'Not Targeted Intentionally'

Kyle Turris' hit on Joe Corvo during the third period of the Bruins' 5-3 win over the Senators on Saturday was enough to warrant a phone hearing with Brendan Shanahan. But it wasn't enough to garner supplemental discipline.

Kyle Turris Leaves Feet to Land Cheap Shot on Joe Corvo (Video)

Kyle Turris' phone should be blowing up with a call from Brendan Shanahan very soon. That's because the Senators center delivered a very questionable hit during the Bruins' 5-3 win in Ottawa on Saturday night. Turris lined up Joe Corvo before leaving his feet to deliver a blow to the Boston defenseman. The play briefly shook up Corvo, led to a two-minute boarding call...

How Will the Bruins Retaliate Against Ottawa for Kyle Turris' Hit on Joe Corvo?

There's a reason that playoffs breed such intensity of emotions between teams. Big hits, cheap shots and every little slight is magnified because teams operate knowing that they'll have to own up for their actions the rest of the series. On Tuesday, the Bruins will get a chance of sorts to show a playoff-like intensity playing the Ottawa Senators for the second straight game...

Joe Corvo Calls Out Kyle Turris for 'Cheap Shot,' Says 'I Want to Fight Him'

Ottawa's Kyle Turris escaped the wrath of league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan following his hit on Joe Corvo during Saturday's game.

The B's blue liner reportedly feels that the play was a...

Joe Corvo Denied Chance at Revenge As Kyle Turris Refuses to Answer Bell for Questionable Hit

BOSTON – The Bruins didn't get anything they wanted out of Tuesday's game with Ottawa. They didn't get the two points they sought to strengthen their hold on the Northeast Division lead. They didn't get a single shot past Senators rookie goalie Robin Lehner in a frustrating 1-0 loss. And defenseman Joe Corvo didn't even get his pound of flesh. Corvo was upset...

Shanahan will not suspend Kyle Turris

Kyle Turris will not be suspended for his hit on Joe Corvo. I think this is the wrong decision and this is the type of hits that need to be eliminated from hockey. Whole Shanahan can say that Turris didn't leave his feet; I would like to know what video that Shanny was watching. Dan Rosen - NHL.com --- Shanahan said Turris told the Department of Player Safety that he...

No Action Will Be Taken Against Turris For Hit Delivered Last Night

NEW YORK (February 26, 2012) – Following a telephone hearing conducted this afternoon, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety has decided that no supplemental discipline is merited for a hit by Ottawa Senators forward Kyle Turris against Boston Bruins defenseman Joe Corvo in NHL Game No. 919 on Saturday, Feb. 25, in Ottawa. “Because there was enough head...

Ty Anderson: Fight Night? Turris & Sens return to Boston

The Boston Bruins may have left Ottawa with two points, but they were none too pleased with their Northeast foe, specifically the Sens' Kyle Turris. After a questionable hit on Boston blue-liner Joe Corvo came in a period that began with Chris Neil flattening Johnny Boychuk, a non-suspension for Turris' elbow left the veteran Boston defensemen with a bit of a bee under his...

Bruins Likely Trying to Play 'Hard to Get,' Not Look Desperate by Avoiding Early Fights (Video)

Where's the beef? Like many other Bruins fans, NESN Nation's Dan Duquette was expecting the fists to be flying early and often against the Senators on Tuesday night. So far, that hasn't been the case. Maybe the Bruins have just been taking things slow to avoid looking desperate. After all, Joe Corvo backed off his comments promising a fight and is likely trying to avoid...

Revenge Best Served on Ice as Kyle Turris, Senators Venture Back to Boston for Rematch (Video)

Brendan Shanahan didn't feel the need to suspend Kyle Turris, so it looks like the Bruins will likely have to serve up punishment for a questionable hit the old-fashioned way: by attempting to punch a guy in the face. Turris and the Senators got on the Bruins' bad side after a bad hit on Joe Corvo last time these two teams played, and NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is happy...

Corvo aware of crowded blue line

The fact that the Bruins acquired two defensemen in Greg Zanon and Mike Mottau Monday was not lost on Joe Corvo.

Bruins Fail to Capitalize on Chance for Stranglehold on Division, Allow Senators to Make It a Race in Northeast

BOSTON – The Bruins remain in control of their destiny in the division, but they’re going to have to work a lot harder for that title now. Boston came into Tuesday with a chance to extend their lead over Ottawa in the Northeast Division to five points with four games in hand. But the Bruins failed to muster a single goal, and now their lead is down to a single point after a 1...

Travis Yost: Trade Deadline Notes

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter and Facebook! -- Although the Ottawa Senators made their biggest move earlier in the season, acquiring center Kyle Turris from the Phoenix Coyotes, there remains an outside chance that the team does pull the trigger on a deal in the coming hours. Ottawa's not a big player in the slightest right now, but Bryan Murray's remain adamant...

Brendan Shanahan's Ruling on Kyle Turris Hit Offers More Inconsistency From NHL, Exposes Flawed Logic

Brendan Shanahan took no prisoners during his first few weeks on the job as the NHL's dean of discipline. Handing out suspension after suspension, each detailed with video explanations featuring some cool graphics, the league's senior vice president for player safety truly earned the nickname "Shanaban." Looking back on it, ruling with an iron fist was one of the...
