So, per the Ottawa Sun's Chris Stevenson: Ex-Chicago Blackhawk Tony Amonte stirred things up at the Stanley Cup final when he questioned the toughness of 'Hawks winger Marian Hossa. Hossa missed Game 3 after taking the warmup -- it was rumoured he had a neck injury -- but was back at his post for Game 4 Wednesday night.

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 why it was a pretty tough blow for Chicago to take when they had to scratch the veteran forward just minutes before Game 3. It sounds like Hossa should be back for Game 4, though. That’s according...
