Franzen continues playoff heroics
Detroit forward Johan Franzen struggled to score goals through 27 games after he scored five in one game on Feb. 2 against the Ottawa Senators.

The playoffs are a different story.

Franzen has now played 76 playoff games -- nearly a full regular-season equivalent of games -- and added to his numbers with a goal and assist. He now has 36 goals and 70 points in the playoffs with a plus-38 rating.

"You always have something to play for, but it's not the same," he said of the regular season. "We win the games we need to pretty much, but I think lots of guys have been waiting for this night."

Himself included.
Quote of the Day

It was pretty unbelievable...I think (my family in France) is pretty much in front of the TV right now. I don't think I have to wake them up.
