Franzen to play by Game 4
Game 2 is Monday. Game 3 is Wednesday and Game 4 is Saturday. Hopefully, Franzen will be on the ice for at least one of those games.
The interesting thing, to me, about players returning from injury is that they often start with a bang and then hit a rut. So Franzen might be effective despite having so much time off.
UPDATE: Franzen spoke after practice on how he feels: "OK. Could be better."
He listed himself as a "maybe" for Game 2.
I think that falls in line with what Holland said. Franzen will be back in the lineup this week, more likely in Pittsburgh than in Game 2.
