SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Raffi Torres is making quite a positive impact in his return to the playoffs.
A year after being kicked out of the postseason for his vicious hit against Chicago's Marian Hossa, Torres has played a major role in helping the San Jose Sharks take a 2-0 series lead after winning two straight games in Vancouver.
Torres helped set the tone for the series with his physical play in Game 1 when he delivered six hits against his former team. He then gave the Sharks control in the series with his overtime game-winner in Game 2.
The series shifts to San Jose for Game 3 Sunday where a raucous crowd is expected at HP Pavilion, where the Sharks lost just twice in regulation all season.
