CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Calgary Flames interim general manager Brian Burke defended his coach Bob Hartley on Monday and said Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella "oughta keep his mouth shut."

Burke, also Calgary's president of hockey operations, responded to Tortorella's postgame comments after Sunday's game in Vancouver, where the Canucks won the regular-season finale 5-1.

Tortorella had objected when Canucks forward Daniel Sedin was hit from behind and driven into the boards by Flames forward Paul Byron late in the second period.

Sedin was taken off the ice on a stretcher after scoring twice in the game, while Byron was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct.
