The Malik Report
by George Malik on 04/16/11 at 03:20 PM ET
Per NBC Sports’ Darren Pang, Johan Franzen is now “questionable” to return after having left the ice to get stitches for a new gash on his forehead and have a bloody nose looked at—and be evaluated for a concussion—after a similarly questionable hit by Shane Doan, who refused to let up on the off-balance Franzen.
Update 2:36 PM:
23 stitches and a probable broken nose later, FRANZEN IS BACK ON THE BENCH!!!!!!
Babcock was confused about the lack of a visor and Franzen shook his head. Nuh nuh.
Update 2:40 PM: Says the crowd: “Franzen! Franzen! Franzen!” Standing ovation!

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.
