 DETROIT (AP) -Todd Bertuzzi skated in practice with the Detroit Red Wings on Friday and hopes to play in Game 2 of their first-round series against Calgary.
Bertuzzi didn't play in Thursday's Game 1, which Detroit won 4-1, or in the regular season finale because of a concussion and a neck injury.
``He's been cleared medically,'' Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. ``Now, he has to get cleared by our therapy people as far as being ready to play.
``If he's ready to go, he'll be in.''
Both teams will have another day to practice before playing Sunday in Game 2 of the best-of-seven series.
Bertuzzi skated briefly on his own Thursday and took part in an optional practice Friday.
``It felt pretty good,'' he said. ``We'll see how it feels tomorrow after another hard skate.''
Detroit acquired the 6-foot-3, 242-pound forward from Florida on Feb. 27 - just before the NHL's trading deadline - and he missed 10 games recovering from back surgery, then played in eight.
He played just 15 regular-season games for the Panthers and Red Wings, but said he's in good enough shape to contribute in the playoffs.
``I'm fit enough. I don't think that's an issue,'' said Bertuzzi, who has 554 points in the regular season and playoffs over his 11-season career. ``It's been an up-and-down year for sure.
``But I'm happy that my health is better, and it was nice to see the guys get a huge win.''
