Todd Bertuzzi Clears Up Ping-Pong Story

It turns out the "incident" involving Todd Bertuzzi, a ping-pong table and the Nashville Predators was not nearly as interesting as originally reported.

On Monday night, it was tweeted by Red Wings TV producer Will Posthumus that Bertuzzi saw the Predators using a ping-pong table outside of the locker rooms in Joe Louis Arena. Not wanting them to continue, Bertuzzi told them to get their own and packed it up and took it back to the Red Wings' locker room, according to the tweets. The situation was extremely funny to think about, but the real story of what happened came out on Tuesday. Unfortunately, it's not nearly as entertaining.

"I came out of our room, saw some of their guys wanting to play on our Ping Pong tables and told security," Bertuzzi told the Free Press. "I didn't do anything else. I didn't move the table myself."

Even though it didn't happen, it's still absolutely hilarious to think about Bertuzzi folding up a ping-pong table the Predators were trying to use. I guess this story will just go down as one of the great myths of the 2012 NHL playoffs.
