wood furnace to gas furnace

I have a fire chief outside forced air wood furnace the hot air duct coming out of it is 10'' and it hooks into the plenum on my gas furnace. The problem is some of the hot air goes out the hot air duct but alot of it goes down thru the gas furnace and up thru the cold air return. Is there any way to get all the hot air thru the hot air duct?

With the furnaces blower running. The wood stoves blower may not be strong enough to keep blowing air into the plenum.

Need a back draft damper to prevent it from going through the return.

Where does the wood stove get its return air from?
