Johan Franzen did not skate due to an unspecified lower-body injury sustained in Thursday’s game. Coach Mike Babcock wouldn’t reveal the injury, saying Franzen was sent for tests and is questionable for Saturday’s game against Washington.
“Franzen got bumped last night so we sent him over to get checked out,’’ Babcock said. “He wasn’t feeling as good this morning. We’ll see if he’s OK or not.’’
Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson practiced and is fine after taking a shot off the side of his left knee midway through the third period Thursday.
