Franzen out for tonight\'s Game 2
DETROIT -- The Red Wings will be without the services of Johan Franzen for tonight's Game 2 of their best-of-seven Western Conference finals series with Dallas at Joe Louis Arena.

Franzen, who leads all playoff scorers with 12 goals and three assist, was experiencing concussion-like symthoms prior to the Wings taking the ice for pre-game warm-ups. He has been experiencing recurring headaches since early in the Western Conference semifinal against Colorado.

The Red Wings' medical staff recommended that as a precaution, Franzen -- who has scored an NHL-high 27 times since March 2, a 27-game roll that includes a league-high and  franchise-record 12 goals in the postseason -- not play until further testing and evaluation is complete.

Veteran forward Darren McCarty took Franzen's spot in Saturday's lineup.

On Sunday, the team is scheduled to leave for Dallas, the site of Games 3 and 4 on Monday and Wednesday. Franzen will remain in Detroit to undergo testing on Monday.
