The Detroit Red Wings announced on Friday that forward Johan Franzen is expected to miss four months with a torn ACL.

The injury to his left knee occurred during Detroit's 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night.

Justin Abdelkader was recalled from the Grand Rapids Griffins to fill Franzen's spot in the lineup.

Ouch... Just as big a blow as Markov to my Habs. That sucks.

I'm trying to decide if it's better or worse to know of the injury when it happens. We're spared the Markov-like image of Franzen limping off the ice only to be blindsided by it the next day.

He finished the f*cking game! It can't be that bad!

True enough and probably made it worse.

Let's hope Filppula and Leino can make that step up. I'm intrigued what line combinations Babcock will use, I wonder if he'll put Zetterberg on the wing on the first line and put Filppula on the second line, or maybe even put Cleary on the first line.

You're right about Filppula, Leino and Zetterberg being called on to step up. Line combos from today's skate are a part of the pregame notes for tonight's game.
