Bertuzzi leaves for Detroit with upper-body injury

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Detroit forward Todd Bertuzzi was knocked out of Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinal against San Jose with an undisclosed upper body injury.

Bertuzzi played five shifts in the first period Thursday night, but none after the opening 10 minutes. The team announced early in the second period that he won't return to the game.

The Red Wings trailed 2-0 after one period. They are trying to become the fourth NHL team to win a playoff series after falling behind 3-0 in the series.
