Mike Brown will be back for the Anaheim Ducks in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal.
The Detroit Red Wings were told Saturday that Brown would not be
suspended for his hit that bloodied Jiri Hudler.
Brown landed a blow to Hudler's head in the first period of Game 1 on Friday night. He was given a major penalty for interference, leading to Detroit scoring a tying goal, and a game misconduct that ended his night.
The game was delayed briefly while Hudler was helped off the ice and blood was scraped off it. A towel was pressed against a big cut above Hudler's left eye.
Hudler returned to the game in the second period, helping the defending Stanley Cup champions win 3-2 to stay undefeated in the playoffs.
