Babcock: Stuart 'will be ready to go'
The Red Wings lost Stuart five shifts into Game 4 after he absorbed a hip check along the boards from Sharks defenseman Rob Blake. The Wings said Stuart had a lower body injury.
"The Doc checked him out, everything seems to be fine and he'll be ready to go next game," Babcock said after the 7-1 rout of San Jose.
Stuart has two goals and six points in Detroit's first 10 playoff games. Stuart, one of the team's hardest hitters, had a plus-6 rating to trail only teammate Henrik Zetterberg entering the game.
