Red Wings' Zetterberg skates, Franzen rests @NHLdotcom

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings seem to be more concerned with Johan Franzen's left ankle than Henrik Zetterberg's left knee.

Zetterberg skated in practice Friday and Franzen did not.

Both players will have some time to recover from injuries.

Detroit completed its sweep of the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday night, giving the team about a week off before the second round.

Zetterberg, the team's leading scorer during the regular season, didn't play in the first round. Franzen, who led the Red Wings with 28 goals during the season, missed Game 4.

The Red Wings averaged 4 1/2 goals against Phoenix despite missing Zetterberg for four games and Franzen for one game plus parts of Game 2.
