Watch Raffi Torres’ vicious hit on Kings’ Jarret Stoll


Kings center Jarret Stoll took a hard hit from San Jose left winger Raffi Torres near the end of the second period of L.A.'s 2-0 victory over the Sharks on Tuesday night in Game 1 of their NHL playoff series.

Stoll was injured and sat out the third period. Coach Darryl Sutter had no comment on the play but said of Stoll: “We weren’t resting him and he didn’t come back.”

Torres was sent off the ice for charging. The NHL is expected to announce Wednesday whether it will hold a hearing to determine whether Torres should be fined or suspended for the hit.


No question how Sharks Coach Todd McLellan would rule if he were in charge.

“Clean hit. Not even a charging penalty in my opinion,” McLellan said.
