Holmstrom was cleared by doctors, Detroit coach Mike Babcock said Monday in San Jose, Calif. The Sharks beat Detroit 2-1 Monday night in Game 3 of their Western Conference series. San Jose leads the series 2-1.
Holmstrom has been out since April 22, when Calgary's Craig Conroy hit him with his stick in Detroit's series-winning victory over the Flames. The left-winger had 30 goals and 22 assists during the regular season.
