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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
