Detroit Red Wings forward Johan Franzen will miss tonight's game due to a sore hip flexor, general manager Ken Holland said.

Franzen is listed as day-to-day. Patrick Eaves, a healthy scratch the past four games, will replace Franzen in the lineup against the St. Louis Blues.

“It’s day-to-day and has progressively gotten worse,'' Holland said of Franzen's injury. “We’re going to give him a day off and see how he feels tomorrow.''
