So it was Tyler…

Tyler Bertuzzi did a very dumb thing on Friday, hacking Cal Clutterbuck in the leg.

Clutterbuck went down like he was shot and the Wings got a 5-minute penalty that ultimately cost the Wings a point against the New York Islanders.

Detroit lost 7-6 in overtime, and I’m going to write up a recap (I’m just getting back from a Noel Gallagher concert):

Bertuzzi spoke to the media after the game, per Fox Sports Detroit:

Coach Blashill was not happy about the turn of events…

As was Henrik Zetterberg…

Here are the game’s highlights from

 Tyler’s 22–I get that–but he’s played a lot of hockey at the AHL level (as Zetterberg notes), and he should know better than that.

One thought on “So it was Tyler…”

  1. Oh yeah! Little Bert made a real bone headed move and it cost him and the team. Now the penalty kill absolutely sucked and I know Bert can’t be blamed for that, but he should learn to keep notes and maim someone who does him wrong at a latter date.
