DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi will not play Sunday against the Calgary Flames in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series.

He has been out with a concussion and a neck injury.

Bertuzzi said he felt comfortable after skating with his teammates Saturday, but a team spokesman later said the 6-foot-3, 242-pound forward would not play Sunday.

Does Bertuzzi expect to play Tuesday night in Game 3 at Calgary?

''Oh yeah,'' he said. ''I'm hoping so.''

NHL suspends Predators' Radulov for 1 game

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The NHL on Saturday suspended Nashville Predators forward Alexander Radulov for one game for a hitting-from-behind incident involving Sharks forward Steve Bernier in Nashville's first-round series with San Jose.

Radulov will miss Game 3 of the Western Conference series Monday at San Jose. He will be eligible to return for Game 4, on Wednesday at San Jose.

Also Saturday, the NHL rescinded two game misconducts called on Predators forward Scott Hartnell, meaning he won't have to sit out a game in the series with the Sharks.

The calls came Friday in the closing minute of Game 2.

As Hartnell scuffled with Ryan Clowe and Mike Grier, his jersey tie-down was opened causing him to lose his jersey and earn his first game misconduct. The second resulted from the fighting that continued between the two teams.

''The tie-down problem was pretty clear on video,'' Predators coach Barry Trotz said Saturday. ''You see a player yanking on him. It broke the strap on the back of his pants.

''The league reviewed the entire altercation. They sorted it out and determined which was the first fight.''

According to league rules, a player who earns two game misconducts in a playoff series has to sit out a game.
