Joe Corvo is bummed out that Kyle Turris didn’t want to fight

While the Bruins lost a tough one to Ottawa last night 1-0, the game’s other storyline didn’t come to fruition either.

After getting lit up by Kyle Turris in their last meeting, Joe Corvo talked a lot about how he was going to get him for it. Corvo backed off of that declaration saying he had “foot-in-mouth” disease but it’s not as if Corvo would turn down the chance to settle the score.

While Turris said he’d defend himself if he had to, his teammates weren’t about to let that happen. Corvo asked about a fight during the game and was given the expected response by the Senators as Joe Haggerty of found out.

“His teammates said he wasn’t going to fight me, so that’s it,” said Corvo, who also added Brendan Shanahan to his cast of recurring characters. “I wasn’t going to be the idiot chasing him around.”

That’s probably all for the best for Corvo because making statements saying you’re going to give a guy some payback is an easy way to land on the NHL’s radar for a suspension. Instead, Corvo had to settle for seeing Milan Lucic lay a big hit on Turris during the game to make up for it.

    The Bruins and their fans are a class act. Just ask them.

      awwwww, still stinging from yet another loss last night?

      Same ol’, same ol’… find a new complaint.

      Wow. That one really stings, man. Total zinger. Your wit and wisdom are the banes of the existence of Bruins fans everywhere. (*Yawn*) Why don’t you go haunt the comments sections of stories on how the Canadiens are doing. They could use all the help they can get, and with your obviously superior intellect and hockey knowledge, I’m sure you’ll have all the answers they’ve so desperately been searching for.

        Did I hit a nerve?

        Not really, no. It’s just boring seeing the same tired garbage over and over and over again from certain folks here. It doesn’t add anything useful to the conversation and frankly it’s weak even as far as criticisms go. This story doesn’t even have anything to do with the Canadiens and yet you manage to worm your way into it just to spew your nonsense yet again. How about talking about…oh, I don’t know…maybe let’s say…hockey? Lay off the character potshots and just talk about the damn game for a change. Why is that so hard for you to do?

        And honestly, are you going to sit there and try to say that the Canadiens, or any team in the league for that matter, don’t have classless players and fans in their fold? What a crock of crap. Of course there are classless players and fans affiliated with the Bruins. That’s sports. It happens. But to try to make it sound like all Bruins players and fans of the team are classless is asinine. Stop wasting everyone’s time with your ridiculous nonsense.

    Ya I (gad this feels gross) gotta agree with Bruins fans on this one pal, I’m not sure anyone hates Boston sports teams as much as this guy does but … that was actually a classy response by Corvo. There’s kind of nothing to hate on him here for.

    Yah…both you and your team are irrelevant.
