Not since his days with the Vancouver Canucks has Todd Bertuzzi made such as impact on the power play as he did Saturday night for the Red Wings.
“I’ve been off and on sparingly, so when I’m on there I have to make sure to take full advantage when I’m out there,” he said. “Do the little things, be strong on the faceoff for the guys, get the puck back to them and get in front of the net.”
Bertuzzi led a parade of power-play goals as the Red Wings recovered from two straight losses to beat the listless Philadelphia Flyers, 5-2, at Joe Louis Arena.
Bertuzzi was on the ice for four of the Wings’ goals, scoring one on the power play and raising havoc as a net-front presence on power-play tallies by Niklas Kronwall and Pavel Datsyuk, who also had two assists each.
Bertuzzi’s goal was his first on the power play since he accounted for the Wings’ lone goal in a 5-1 loss to the Atlanta Thrashers on Nov. 24, 2010.

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related.

I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
