Red Wings' Franzen to miss Game 4
GLENDALE, Ariz. – Detroit forward Johan Franzen, bothered by ankle and head problems since a hard fall in Game 2, was a scratch for Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal series with Phoenix on Wednesday.

Franzen was replaced in the lineup by veteran Mike Modano. Valtteri Filppula will move up to the first line with Pavel Datsyuk and Tomas Holmstrom on Phoenix's first line, with Henrik Zetterberg (knee) still out of the lineup.

The Coyotes also had one change. Enforcer Paul Bissonnette will make his first appearance of the series in place of Andrew Ebbett.
Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
