Robert Bortuzzo had to defend himself Monday night against Jordan Tootoo — twice.
Bortuzzo drew the ire of the New Jersey Devils earlier this month when he delivered a cheap shot on Devils winger Jaromir Jagr. The Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman, who said after that game that he was “OK” with his hit, was slapped with a two-game suspension, but Tootoo decided to add a bit of his own justice.
Tootoo challenged, and proceeded to pound, Bortuzzo twice in the second period of Monday’s 3-1 Devils win.
Neither Tootoo nor Bortuzzo registered a point in the contest, but Jagr did, netting the eventual game-winning goal shortly after the second bout.
