Hip flexor to sideline Franzen on Wednesday

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

The Detroit Red Wings will be without first-line forward Johan Franzen on Wednesday night against the St. Louis Blues.

General manager Ken Holland said Franzen will miss the game due to a hip flexor.

"It's day-to-day and has progressively gotten worse," Holland told Ansar Khan of MLive.com. "We're going to give him a day off and see how he feels tomorrow."

Franzen will be replaced in the lineup by Patrick Eaves.
