Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa scratched from lineup against Avalanche

CHICAGO - Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa is out of the lineup against Colorado because of an upper-body injury.

Hossa was scratched just before Wednesday night's game against the Avalanche. The Blackhawks (20-0-3) were trying to extend their NHL record after earning at least one point in their first 23 games.

Hossa, who has 10 goals and eight assists, scored a goal Tuesday night in Chicago's 5-3 win over Minnesota.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
