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.
