Franzen was placed on short-term injured reserve (seven days minimum) and will miss at least a few more games.
“Any time it’s a head injury -- we’ve been through it a number of times -- they’re hard things,” coach Mike Babcock said. “Obviously, Mule thought he was ready and then found out he wasn’t.
“He’ll be out a few (games) for sure, anyways, and he continues to work with doctors at U-M; they’ll figure out when he’s available.”
General manager Ken Holland said Franzen made the trip to Philadelphia but did not feel well this morning.
“He’s been in constant communication with (the specialist),” Holland said. “He’s got to have a lot of days of being healthy before he plays.”
Tonight will be the first time that Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Franzen have been out for the same game.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
