Good, if not surprising, news on Franzen. The news on the power play isn’t earth-shattering either, as Babcock indicated as much yesterday without actually saying it. Interesting to see St. James suggest Franzen’s return will boost the power play. Not like it was ripping along before he went down… Â But in theory, yes, it should help.
Also: the long break either reset the rotation or Babcock’s already done with alternating goalies, as Jimmy Howard will start tomorrow night.
