Paul wasn't feeling well when this news broke, so, a little belatedly: ESPN Chicago's Scott Powers reports that the Blackhawks believe that Marian Hossa will return from whatever ailed him in Game 3 in time to skate in Game 4: Other than saying it's an upper-body injury, [Blackhawks coach Joel] Quenneville wouldn't go into detail about why Hossa, who is tied for the team lead with 15 playoff points, was scratched from Monday's game after participating in the pregame warm-up. "Not going to go exactly where the injury is or [when it] occurred, but I'm going to say he's likely to play tomorrow night," Quenneville said. Ben Smith, who did not take part in the warm-ups, subbed in for Hossa.

Marian Hossa: ‘I Really Don’t Care What Tony Amonte Says’

Tony Amonte played eight-plus seasons in Chicago but one current Blackhawk doesn’t really care what one of the franchise’s all-time best has to say about him. Marian Hossa, who missed Game 3 against the Bruins due to injury, was lit up by Amonte, who is ninth on the team’s all-time scoring list with 541 points. “[Hossa] is not the guy with the highest pain threshold in the...

The real 3 stars of Game 3

Marian Hossa was a late scratch for the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday, but I'm not even sure the team's co-points leader in these playoffs could saved them in a relatively easy 2-0 win for the Boston Bruins , who moved to within two wins of their second Cup in three years. Daniel Paille, the savior of Game 2 , got on the board first for...

Joel Quenneville Says Marian Hossa Will ‘Likely’ Play in Game 4 Against Bruins

Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa has yet to find the back of the net in the Stanley Cup Final, but through two games against the Bruins, it looked like he was ready to break out.

That’s according...

Game Three

Chicago's offence seems to have dried up.  They haven't scored a goal since the first period of game two.  This was the highest scoring team in the West Conference this season.  It appears that their best scorers are hurt or injured.  Marian Hossa missed game three as a late scratch.  Neither Jonathan Toews nor Patrick Kane have looked like the stars they usually look...
