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

I think you always have to look internally before you look externally to see, 'Do we have these players within our organization?' And I think we do.

— Ottawa Senators assistant general manager Pierre Dorion on the Binghamton Senators (AHL affiliate)
