Franzen to play by Game 4

General manager Ken Holland just told me that Johan Franzen will practice full out today and at Monday morning's skate. His status will be determined after that, but the good news is Holland saying, "He will be in the lineup sometime this week."

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.
