MONTREAL - The sight of George Parros laid out on the ice cast a long shadow on Tuesday. Ricardo Carvalho Jersey . Parros suffered a concussion early in the third period of the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 home-opener loss to the rival Toronto Maple Leafs after slamming face first into the ice during a fight. Parros was knocked unconscious after a tussle with Colton Orr - their second fight of an unruly game - brought him tumbling to the ice. He fell hard on his chin while attempting to punch Orr, who was tugging at Parros jersey. "Thanks for all the well wishes everyone," said Parros from his verified Twitter account a few hours after the game, adding the hashtag "classyfollowers." The hard-hitting Canadiens forward spent several minutes motionless on the ice, attended to by the teams medical staffs, before being taken off on a stretcher. The Canadiens announced that he was released from hospital on Wednesday morning and is out indefinitely. "You never want to see a guy get hurt like that," said Orr. "It was a scary situation. I just hope hes all right. "It happened fast. I slipped and he came on top of me. The ice isnt going to give." Parros and Orr have a long history. The two have fought each other several times in the past, and Orr was injured in a similar fight with Parros two years ago at Torontos Air Canada Centre. Parros, then with the Anaheim Ducks, landed on Orr, who suffered a concussion and didnt play for the rest of that season. Parros teammates are hoping he will be back with the team soon. "Any time you see a guy go down — no matter what team hes on — its pretty scary," said Canadiens captain Brian Gionta. "Hopefully things are all right, and that hell bounce back quickly. "Its tough. You have a guy whos coming into a new team and he wants to establish himself. He had a good game tonight stepping up for his guys and protecting his guys. You never like to see him go down like that." Shortly after the incident, Torontos Mason Raymond — in his first game with the Leafs — put the game out of Montreals reach, scoring the eventual game-winner. Brendan Gallagher thinks his team didnt react as well as they could have after Parros injury. "Your emotions take you for a little bit of a ride," said Gallagher. "We would have liked to respond better. Its tough to see your teammate down. Were human and we react like humans. "When it happens, its tough. But as soon as the puck drops, you get back to playing. Knowing him and knowing the person he is, hell recover and be in our lineup in no time." Parros injury could reignite the debate about whether fighting has a place in hockey. But Josh Gorges doesnt think it should. "I see more players get hurt from hits, collisions, from pucks, than I do from fights," said Gorges. "I dont think saying because a player got hurt in a fight that now we have to talk about taking fighting away. And I bet that if you ask George (Parros), hell be the first to agree with me on that one too." Parros joined Montreal this summer after one season with the Florida Panthers. Tuesdays game was his first in a Canadiens uniform. Montreals next game is Saturday, Oct. 5, at home against the Philadelphia Flyers. Joao Moutinho Jersey . "Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. William Carvalho Portugal Jersey . After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. http://www.officialportugalonline.com/w ... ll-jersey/
LONDON -- Fernando Torres made the most of a rare Chelsea start Tuesday by scoring one and setting up another in a 2-0 victory over third-tier club Swindon in the League Cup, while Manchester City and Tottenham advanced with stylish wins. Torres slotted in from close range in the 29th minute, and then wriggled through the defence six minutes later before slipping the ball through to Ramires to dink the ball into the net. "For the players who have not played in the last few matches it was good to play -- everyone is happy," Torres said. "It is one step forward." It was the Spain strikers first domestic start since the opening game of the season more than a month ago. "Hopefully Ill have more chances to play in the Premier League games," he said. Likewise for Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe after netting twice in a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa. In the other all-Premier League clashes, Evertons unbeaten start ended in a 2-1 loss at Fulham, and West Ham edged Cardiff 3-2 to reach the fourth round. All the topflight sides avoided embarrassment against lower-league opposition, Norwich winning 3-2 at Watford in extra time, Hull beating Huddersfield 1-0, Southampton overcoming Bristol City 2-0, and Sunderland ousting Peterborough by the same scoreline. Man City avenged last seasons FA Cup final loss to Wigan, by routing the second-tier side 5-0 with Stevan Jovetic scoring his first goals since joining from Fiorentina. Edin Dzeko opened the scoring the hosts by volleying into the net in the 33rd minute before Jovetic bundled in the second on the hour. Yaya Toure came off the bench to curl in a free kick from 20 yards -- his third such goal of the season -- and Jovetic netted again from cclose range in the 83rd after Ryan Shotton made a mess of a clearance. Silvestre Varela Jersey. Jesus Navas rounded off the scoring three minutes later when he broke through and fired a low shot past goalkeeper Lee Nicholls. At Villa Park, 42-year-old American goalkeeper Brad Friedel had little to do on his return to his own club as the Tottenham attack shone. It took the visitors until the stroke of half time to go in front, with Defoe flicking a header over 21-year-old Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer after latching onto Lewis Holtbys chip. Holtby set up another four minutes into the second half, with Paulinho stabbing in his second goal in three days, having scored Tottenhams Premier League winner at Cardiff on Sunday. Winger Nacer Chadli blasted in his first goal since joining from FC Twente in the close season and Defoe wrapped up the victory in stoppage time by rounding the goalkeeper and putting the ball in the net for Tottenham. "It was another super performance from Jermain Defoe, he showed great desire," Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas said. "His performances have been excellent." Fulham fought back from 1-0 down to beat Everton. Darren Bent scored the winner in the 69th after Dimitar Berbatov cancelled out Steven Naismiths opener. Cardiff had staged a fightback after trailing 2-0 to West Ham before going out of the competition. The hosts lead, secured by Ravel Morrison and Matthew Jarvis, was wiped out by Craig Noone and Peter Odemwingie, but the London club recovered with Ricardo Vaz Te netting the winner. At Sunderland, two days after manager Paolo Di Canio was fired, Emanuele Giaccherini and Valentin Roberge scored in a routine victory over third-tier club Peterborough.
