Coyotes Tracks - April 17, 2011 - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

DETROIT, MI - APRIL 16: Johan Franzen #93 of the Detroit Red Wings returns to the game in the second period after being badly cut on the face in the first period while playing the Phoenix Coyotes in Game Two of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Joe Louis Arena on April 16, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan.

The Good news, the Coyotes scored 3 power play goals. The Bad news, they were already in a 4 goals hole. The Ugly, was Johan Franzen's face (pictured above). His face was made uglier than usual after Shane Doan finished a check, causing Franzen to fall awkwardly, into the boards.
