Stuart's a hit

Brad Stuart is physical by NHL standards. The defenceman has 99 hits this season -- a total topped on the Red Wings only by Andreas Lilja (120).
The Wings knew they were getting a hitter when they added Stuart at the trade deadline and so far he's lived up to the billing. In his five games with Detroit, Stuart leads the team with 11 hits.
Here's a look at the Red Wings' leaders in hits over the past five games ...
Stuart 11
Drake 10
Downey 8
Lilja 7
Samuelsson 7
Draper 6
Franzen 6
Kronwall 6
Dallas Drake's recent play has been good and this stat reflects that. Aaron Downey's ability to rack up two or three hits on one shift is remarkable. I'd never have guessed Mikael Samuelsson would be on the list, but he doesn't shy away from taking the body.

I was pretty geeked when they announced the signing of Stuart. Another feather in the success hat of Mr. Holland.
