Red Wings' Franzen back Sunday; Weiss to IR

The Detroit Red Wings will place forward Stephen Weiss on injured reserve to open a roster spot for forward Johan Franzen, who will return to play Sunday, the Red Wings said Friday.

Franzen, who has been out since Oct. 17 because of a groin injury, will be in the lineup against the Buffalo Sabres.

"We anticipate Mule (Franzen) playing on Sunday," Holland said, according to MLive.com. "And if Mule is ready to go on Sunday, whenever we need a roster spot, Weiss will go on IR because he's not eligible to play right now."

Chef Chuck Hughes talks hockey, food on NHL Live

Celebrity chef and Montreal Canadiens fan Chuck Hughes joined NHL Live in studio to discuss his passion for hockey and his new book, "Chuck's Day Off."

"Growing up in Montreal you don't have a choice," Hughes said on becoming a hockey fan. "Obviously the Canadiens being one of the most iconic teams out there, growing up in the city it's infectious. You can't not love the Canadiens. When the season is over everybody is sad. The whole summer we speculate, we talk about it and wait for the season to start.

"It stems from also playing as a kid. I'm a big hockey fan and I love the Canadiens, but I think even more so I'm in love with this sport. I still play four-five times a week; whenever I can I get on the ice. When I watch I can respect and realize how hard the game actually is. I try to tell people if you're not a hockey fan it's because you haven't seen a game live. Once you've seen a game live you can't not love it."

At the Rink: Blue Jackets at Kings

A win against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday at Staples Center will give the Los Angeles Kings their first 6-0-0 homestand in franchise history.

As well as the defending Stanley Cup champions have played to start the season, winning five straight after losing their first two games, the players believe there's room for improvement. The Kings have allowed 35 shots per game, ranking 29th in the NHL. Their offense has been top heavy with Tanner Pearson, Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli combining for all but four of their 16 goals, and L.A. has averaged 27.1 shots per game, 26th in the League.

"We're what, seven games in, and we should start hitting our strides," center Anze Kopitar told the Los Angeles Times on Saturday. "The last couple of games have been better. We've just got to build on it and stay consistent. That's what it is. You're trying to get to a point where you feel comfortable playing the game and feeling good about your game, and then just try and stay up there as long as you can."

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.

— Lightning forward Steven Stamkos after Game 7 win vs. Rangers on Friday in New York
