Franzen out Game 4

Johan Franzen won't play in Game 4 of the Western Conference final. When he returns to the ice is still unknown.

THe NHL's leading goal-scorer in the playoffs had tests, Monday, because of concussion-like symptoms ... headaches. General manager Ken Holland said that the tests found nothing that needed treatment.

"Basically, he continues to have headaches and he's day-to-day, nothing significant," said Holland. "We're hoping he's going to be back here at some point in time. For now, he's not going to go in Game 4."

But Franzen's headaches persist, so he'll have to rest until they subside. He's not able to work on conditioning (bike, etc) right now.

"The doctor that did see him said he's day-to-day," said Holland. "We're hoping that he'll feel better in a few days. ... When the headaches go away they'll look at him again. For right now, we're kind of in a holding pattern."
