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. But will he be able to escape the wrath of the Bruins defenseman himself?

Corvo was visibly upset on Monday, two days after Turris' questionable hit, according to CSNNE.com. The B's blue liner reportedly feels that the play was a cheap shot, and he'll thus be seeking some revenge when the two teams meet up again on Tuesday night at TD Garden.

"Let's just say I'll be looking for him right off the bat," Corvo reportedly said on Monday. "I'm not [happy]. Two days I've been walking around with a headache. Just because I didn't lay down on the ice and get carted off and miss a period…I don't know…it doesn't mean that it wasn't 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 he's a man and he'll step up [Tuesday] when I come after him. I'm not going to try and hurt him, but I want to fight him."

Corvo isn't known for dropping the mitts, getting into the first fight of his nine-year NHL career earlier this season.

Toronto's Joey Crabb was Corvo's first opponent. Could Turris soon be dance partner No. 2?
