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

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
