Leafs’ Kozun and Wings’ Franzen out in Detroit

1 Comment

The Leafs and Red Wings have lineup changes as the two teams prepare for the second of a back-to-back, home-and-home set in Detroit tonight.

Out for the visiting Leafs is forward Brandon Kozun. The winger, who surprised many by cracking Toronto’s opening night roster, is out with a left high ankle sprain suffered during the second period of Friday night’s loss.

Kozun, who did not travel to Detroit, underwent an MRI on Saturday in Toronto.

In his place on the fourth line will be Matt Frattin playing alongside Richard Panik and Peter Holland.  Frattin is playing in just his second game of the season and first since the season opener against Montreal.

On the blue line, veteran Stephane Robidas slots back in for rookie Stuart Percy.

For the Red Wings, Johan Franzen, who left last night’s win with a leg cramp, is out – Stephen Weiss makes his regular season debut in his place.
