Blackhawks scratch Marian Hossa from Game 3 of Stanley Cup finals against Bruins

BOSTON - The Chicago Blackhawks have scratched forward Marian Hossa from Monday night's Stanley Cup final game against the Boston Bruins.

Hossa was tied for the team lead with 15 points in the playoffs. He was third in the regular season on the Blackhawks with 17 goals.

The Blackhawks said on their Twitter account that "something apparently happened during warmups."

Ben Smith was in the lineup in his place. Smith, who played at Boston College, appeared in one game for Chicago during the regular season.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
