Detroit's Tyler Bertuzzi suspended for Lightning game

Detroit's Tyler Bertuzzi suspended for Lightning game

He will miss their games against division rivals Tampa Bay Lightning and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

You may recall that this isn't the first time a Bertuzzi has been involved in a cheap play involving the Avalanche.

It's unclear how he injured his hand.

Semyon Varlamov stopped all 24 shots he faced to push the Colorado Avalanche to a 2-0 victory over the Red Wings in Detroit.

Anthony Mantha will be out 4-6 weeks for the Detroit Red Wings with a hand injury.

F Dylan Larkin grabbed Calvert in a headlock and pulled him over the bench, when Bertuzzi drops a glove and punches Bertuzzi.

"We want to make sure we're sticking up for each other".

In 27 games with the Red Wings this season, Mantha has scored nine goals while dishing out five assists. "That's just the reality of it".

Tyler Bertuzzi has been suspended two games as the result of an incident that occurred during Sunday's Avalanche-Red Wings game in Detroit, the league's Department of Player Safety announced Monday night.

That's easy to say in the calmness of the dressing room but as anyone who's been there and done that knows, much harder to do in the heat of the moment.

Bertuzzi had never previously been fined or suspended in his 82-game National Hockey League career to date.

"The reason I reacted was more or less because I felt I got speared. There were nights I didn't think he'd able to play and he did play".
