ROMULUS, Mich. -- Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock says forward Tomas Kopecky is out for Game 5 against the Anaheim Ducks.

Babcock and the Red Wings arrived home Friday after beating Anaheim 6-3 to even the series.

Kopecky sustained facial injuries during a fight with Francois Beauchemin in the third period of Game 4. He was to be evaluated.

Babcock says defenseman Brian Rafalski and forward Kris Draper are both doubtful for Sunday's game in Detroit. Neither has played in the series because of upper-body injuries.
