Hossa still looking for first point
For most of the games that he was healthy enough to play this season, the Blackhawks fared as Marian Hossa did.

When he scored goals or even a point in games, they usually won. When he didn't, they usually didn't. It's been the same so far in three games against the Canucks in a Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Hossa hasn't scored a single point and has a minus-3 rating and the Hawks are in a 3-0 hole trying to climb out in Game 4 tonight.

"I don't think right now … I don't feel like myself," Hossa said Tuesday morning. "I had some good chances, but sometimes you make a good play and we can not score the goals. Just because you're not having points, it doesn't mean you're not in a comfort zone, but obviously the points would help, the goals would help. Definitely, I'm looking forward to it."
Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
