The Mule train has been derailed.

The Detroit Red Wings scratched center Johan Franzen for Game 2 Saturday night and Game 3 Monday of their Western Conference final against the Dallas Stars because of what the team described as "concussion-like symptoms."

Franzen, nicknamed The Mule, has been a revelation on the Red Wings' second line, leading the playoffs with 12 goals to continue a tear that started late in the regular season. In his past 27 games, Franzen has 27 goals.

Detroit said Franzen has been experiencing recurring headaches since early in the second-round series against Colorado.
