Video: Torres fights Mayers early in Hawks-Yotes rematch

Feb 7, 2013, 10:00 PM EST

Raffi Torres didn’t even log 30 seconds of ice time before he fought in his first game against the Chicago Blackhawks since his devastating hit to the head on Marian Hossa during the 2012 playoffs.

Hossa was hospitalized and concussed as a result of the incident while Torres served a 21-game suspension.

With both of them now active, Hossa downplayed the rematch, but Torres dropped his gloves as soon as Chicago’s Jamal Mayers got off the bench.

Both of them landed several blows during the fight, which you can view below:

“If that doesn’t get you pumped, I don’t know what will,” Patrick Kane said, according to CSN Chciago’s Nina Falcone.

It looks like the fight did just that as Chicago went on to score four unanswered goals in the first period. Phoenix has already accumulated 25 penalty minutes and have been out shot 17-4 through 20 minutes.
