The Malik Report

Updated w/ a picture at 9:45 PM: I don't know if we're gonna find a video of the play, but Todd Bertuzzi took a stick to the eye on a follow-through by Stars forward Jamie Benn. The refs called what is not but should be a double minor for high sticking as follow-throughs are exempt from penalties--though Kris Draper was nearly blinded by Paul Kariya on a similar play.
As Wings fans' collective breath was being held waiting for news on Bertuzzi because he dropped his gloves and went off bleeding, we can all exhale now, per MLive's Ansar Khan.
Fox Sports Detroit's Larry Murphy says that Bertuzzi has cuts both above and below the eye, and he's got quite the shiner going, but he's okay. Squinting a bit on the bench, but okay.
Update: here's a picture, via the Twitter community and Fox Sports Detroit's Dana Wakiji:

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. 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.
