Detroit Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi out for Game 2 against Calgary

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 six-foot-three 242-pound forward would not play Sunday.

The Red Wings won the opener of the best-of-seven series. Bertuzzi said he hopes to return for Game 3 on Tuesday night in Calgary.
