Red Wings' Monday morning skate

No Johan Franzen for the Red Wings in tonight's Game 2. The forward hasn't received medical clearance yet to return from concussion-like symptoms (headaches). He hasn't played since Game 1 of the Western Conference final against Dallas.

Franzen did practice this morning. General manager Ken Holland said that Franzen will return this week, meaning that he will be in the lineup for either Wednesday's Game 3 or Saturday's Game 4.

Of lesser note, the NHL has its top draft prospects in town to meet with the media later today. Steven Stamkos and the boys toured the Wings locker room this morning.

Bruce, TSN reports that Johan HAS been cleared and will play tonight. My brain says you are right, but my heart says they are, only because I want some Franzen on the ice tonight.

Yah, it was a change of direction this morning. Babcock said no and then found out after his press conference that Franzen was cleared to play.
