The Malik Report

If you missed it in the quick take, Red Wings forward Johan Franzen suffered some sort of injury ("undisclosed") during the Red Wings' 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings, and he's iffy for tomorrow's game against Nashville, as MLive's Ansar Khan reports:
Coach Mike Babcock and general manager Ken Holland said Franzen's status for Thursday's home finale vs. Nashville will be determined in the morning.
“He's been real good for us,'' Babcock said. "He didn't finish the game, but hopefully he'll be fine for tomorrow.''
Babcock added, “Don't know a whole bunch. They just took him off the bench, or made him sit on the bench. I couldn't use him down the stretch. I'll find out tomorrow.''
If I were to guess, I'd go with Franzen possibly tweaking his hip flexors toward the end of the game. But that's just a guess.
