Johan Franzen's scored two goals and had an assist to help the Red Wings build a three-goal cushion en route to a 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 last night in Game 1 of their second-round playoff series.

Colorado pulled within a goal by the end of the second and had chances to score late in the game against Chris Osgood, who made 18 saves, including one against John-Michael Liles in the final seconds.

Peter Budaj stopped all 20 shots he faced after a sick Jose Theodore went back to the team hotel after giving up four goals on 16 shots. Forsberg was out with a groin injury.

Game 2 is Saturday afternoon in Detroit.
