Hossa remains home as Hawks head to Phoenix
CHICAGO -- Marian Hossa did not travel with his Chicago Blackhawks teammates for Saturday's Game 5 of a Western Conference Quarterfinal series they trail 3-1 to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Hossa, who was knocked out of Game 3 in Chicago on Tuesday night by a hit from Raffi Torres, also missed Thursday night's Game 4 at United Center with what the team is calling an upper-body injury.

Hossa, who was Chicago's leader in points this season, apparently hasn't improved since he was released from the Northwestern Memorial Hospital late Tuesday night.

"He's the same [as he was on Thursday]," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said.

Torres was suspended indefinitely for the hit pending an in-person hearing at the League offices in New York on Friday afternoon.
Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
