‘The Mule’ Keeps Delivering

from CBC,

For all the superstar talent that envelops their dressing room, when it comes playoff time, one Detroit Red Wing stands above the crowd:

Right-winger Johan Franzen.

The man they call “The Mule” turns into a thoroughbred during the post-season, and he’s a big reason why the Wings find themselves deadlocked 2-2 with the Anaheim Ducks in their Western Conference semifinal series heading into Game 5 Sunday at Joe Louis Arena.

Franzen scored twice in Detroit’s 6-3 Game 4 victory, adding another chapter to his growing Stanley Cup legacy.

He has four goals with two assists in this series, and is fourth in playoff scoring with 12 points.

Eight of his 23 Stanley Cup goals have been game-winners and he’s scored 19 in his last 24 playoff games.

continued and other notes from this series…
