ROBERT BORTUZZO RUMORS

Is Robert Bortuzzo injured?

Free Bortuzzo. That’s the rally cry Blues fans have been screaming on Twitter ever since the Blues announced their lineup for Game 1 against the Wild. Following the Game 3 disaster, the cry grew louder and fans questioned why Ken Hitchcock was ignoring the physical defenseman. Is it because of his puck-handling?

Robert Bortuzzo should be suspended

In one of the most boring games of all time, this play became the focal point: The GIF: YIKES Some things about this hit: 1. There is an alarming amount of people claiming this is a good hit. Because Bob Errey said it was. 2. Bob Errey is wrong. 3. The puck is in the middle of the slot when contact is initially made. 4. Where is the point of contact?   The correct answer...

With injuries plaguing the Penguins’ defensive corps, Pittsburgh called up some young guns to bolster their blue line on Monday night, and one defenseman ensured that his opponents would remember his name — albeit, not in a positive light.

(Video) Robert Bortuzzo head shot on Jerry D'Amigo

Penguins Defenseman Robert Bortuzzo delivers a headshot on Maple Leafs forward Jerry D'Amigo. Bortuzzo was given a two-minute minor for an illegal check to the head. I think there's a chance that Bortuzzo could get a call from the NHL's department of Player Safety.I also agree with the fans that say that the Pittsburgh Penguins don't have the moral high ground, either. Lastly, Is...
