Bertuzzi A Marked Man

from Steve MacFarlane of the Calgary Sun,

Watching Todd Bertuzzi get mugged by Alexandre Burrows Tuesday night, you couldn’t help but feel bad for the Calgary Flames winger.

Pushed, whacked and prodded by the Vancouver Canucks’ agitator into the bench, Bertuzzi tried to be the better man and get back into the play.

Jabbed some more, he looked pleadingly for a man in stripes who would see the abuse and make a call.

None came, and Bertuzzi finally had enough. He poked back and took a coincidental roughing minor with Burrows….

“Well, you know what, he’s a big brute,” said Flames defenceman Adrian Aucoin.

“He’s obviously a marked man.

“I’m not complaining about the officiating, but he’s got a reputation and obviously he’s got to be careful out there. It’s got to be an obvious penalty to go the other way on him.”
