Looks will Franzen will return to center to replace Zetterberg on line with Nyquist and Bertuzzi. Other lines the same in practice.

Zetterberg said he knew something was wrong the last couple of games. Same disc that bothered him before. Evaluate again in couple weeks.

Henrik Zetterberg (hernia) said he doesn’t expect even to practice for 2 weeks. #RedWings

It hurts my soul to think about how bad of a position having both Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk out so I’m not going to try to explain how to the team will deal with it. Instead, I’m just going to toss a guess out there that the three alternate captains on Wednesday will be Niklas Kronwall (as expected), Daniel Alfredsson (since he’s been wearing Datsyuk’s letter) and Johan Franzen.(getting that third A).
