DETROIT (AP) -Johan Franzen was scratched from the Detroit Red Wings' lineup for Game 2 of the Western Conference finals because of concussion-like symptoms.
Franzen didn't play Saturday night against the Dallas Stars as a precaution because he's had recurring headaches dating to early in the previous series.
The Red Wings said he will not play until he has more tests and an evaluation is completed. Franzen is scheduled for tests Monday in Detroit.
Game 3 is Monday night in Dallas.
Franzen has scored an NHL-high 27 times since March 2, a 27-game roll that includes a league-high and franchise-record 12 goals in the postseason. He is the first player to score 12 playoff goals since Rob Brind'Amour for Carolina in 2006.
The player known as Mule matched a team record with a goal in the series-opening win over Dallas, extending his scoring streak to five games. Gordie Howe pulled off the feat in 1949 and '64. Ted Lindsay scored in five consecutive games in 1952.
Franzen has 15 points in 11 playoff games, tying Jaromir Jagr of the already-eliminated New York Rangers.
