Toronto Maple Leafs' Tyler Bertuzzi sounded off on his heated exchange with former teammate and Boston Bruins' captain Brad Marhand in last night's post-game interview.

Bertuzzi and Marchand have quite the history together. They were rivals before Bertuzzi joined the Bruins at last year's trade deadline. Since then, their relationship changed. Bertuzzi actually said that Marchand was a good guy when they were teammates.
Their camaraderie was seen earlier this season, after Marchand did a dirty play on Bertuzzi's teammate, and the Leafs' player simply shook his head from the bench, not surprised to see this from the Bruins' captain.
Now that Bertuzzi is a Maple Leaf, and both teams are facing each other in the playoffs, it's time to put the friendship aside.
Bertuzzi understood that, and didn't shy away from getting rough with Marchand. He slashed him in the back of the knee, which led to a penalty.
After the game, Bertuzzi and Marchand met in the neutral zone and exchanged a few words. In his press conference, Bertuzzi was asked by a reporter to reveal what he said, and didn't want to answer.
"Bertuzzi on his 'conversation' with Marchand at the buzzer:

"That's between me & Brad," he says with a smile

Previously Tyler said he learned Marchand is actually a good guy last season

Will this series test that?

"No, I'll stick with my word ...""

Do you think Tyler Bertuzzi takes the rivalry against the Bruins too lightly?
