Anaheim Ducks' Mike Brown out after bloodying Red Wings' Jiri Hudler

DETROIT - Anaheim Ducks forward Mike Brown was ejected from Game 1 against the Detroit Red Wings for a hit that bloodied Jiri Hudler.

Hudler passed the puck and was defenceless when Brown hit him, appearing to land an elbow to the head during the first period on Friday 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.

Brown was given a major penalty for interference, leading to Detroit's tying goal. He also earned a game misconduct that ended his night.
