Franzen OK

Pweph! When I saw that the first line of the game notes last night was not about the Wings getting smoked 5-1 against Pittsburgh, I knew something was up. Franzen suffered a charlie horse when he was hit by Pens defenseman Brooks Orpik. Last season, Franzen missed 55 games with a torn ACL after being kneed in the third game of the season.

Thankfully it looks like he will just need some rest to help ease the pain and should be back in the lineup soon. The Wings play tomorrow against Chicago, but will probably be starting a different set of forwards, including the line of Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom and the defensive pairings of Lidstrom-Kronwal and Rafalski-Stuart.

ThereĀ are no highlights of that game so I chose the last good memory of the Wings from the 2009-10 playoffs.
