Wings GM: Kopecky might need surgery
Holland said on Saturday that initial indications on Kopecky's condition were "not good" and "it appears he'll need surgery" but the team is waiting for a final report.
Kopecky sustained facial injuries during a fight with Anaheim defenseman Francois Beauchemin in the third period of Detroit's 6-3, series-evening victory in Game 4.
Game 5 is Sunday in Detroit.
