DETROIT (AP) -Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi will not play Sunday against Calgary 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.''
