JOHAN FRANZEN RUMORS

Notes: Franzen set to return Friday

DETROIT -- The Red Wings will get one of their top offensive players back for Friday's game. Johan Franzen, who missed Tuesday's shootout loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets because of illness, practiced with the team Thursday and said he should be good to go. Franzen said he's not felt well for a while. "I've been battling stuff the last few weeks," Franzen said. "Enough was enough...

Video: Alex Burrows takes a skate to the face

There was a frightening moment in the Detroit-Vancouver game when Johan Franzen’s skate came up and cut Alex Burrows on the top of his cheek. Burrows immediately left the ice for repairs, but he was able to return to the ice along with some new stitches. Burrows should be thankful this was a glancing blow and that Franzen’s skate didn’t hit him more directly. (H/T Pro Hockey Talk)

Detroit Red Wings weekly: Losing on the road and in shootouts

The Detroit Red Wings (7-3-5) concluded the 5th week of the NHL regular season with an anti-climactic 4-3 shootout loss to Steve Yzerman’s Tampa Bay Lightning. Ryan Callahan scored the only goal in the skills competition. The Red Wings have lost all three shootouts they have been in; déjà vu to last year when they started the season 0 for 6.

Detroit Red Wings: Johan Franzen is the x-factor

The Detroit Red Wings kicked off the 2014-15 season with a comeback 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins. A goal from Justin Abdelkator’s rear end and a power play tap-in from Gustav Nyquist was enough to cover up the ill-advised turnover that gave the Bruins their only goal. The first star of the game was Johan Franzen. I’d say undeserved, but I’ll give credit where credit is...
