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

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
