Franzen not ready for Game 6

Johan Franzen (headaches) still hasn't skated and isn't expected to play in Monday's Game 6 in Dallas. Franzen can ride the stationary bicycle and can work on conditioning.

"We have to leave it up to the experts, the doctors," said Detroit captain Nicklas Lidstrom. "You don't want to start exercising and get headaches again. That's dangerous. You don't want to push it too early. That's where the doctors' expertise comes in."

"He's getting better," said coach Mike Babcock of Franzen. "He hasn't been cleared to play. ... Does he have to skate for a month as soon as he's cleared? No, he'll play the day he's cleared."

Oh man, this is terrible. The Stanley Cup talk started much too early, that's gotta be the phantom illness Franzen is suffering from. Gun-jump fever. I'm gonna go out to Home Depot and buy a shovel, then I'm gonna dig a hole in the front yard to stick my head into until the series ends one way or the other. I can't handle the stress!
