The word from the NHL so far seems to be that Anaheim's Mike Brown will not be suspended for Game 2. Again, will not be suspended. This should make for some interesting situations today at the Joe.
Detroit's Brian Rafalski will be out of today's lineup again, for an "upper body injury". Jonathan Ericsson will pair with Nick Lidstrom and fill in for Rafalski again after doing a good job in Game 1. Ericsson dropped the gloves with Corey Perry and was a physical presence in the game.
