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

I'll be happy, believe me, if we win our last playoff game. Not taking anything away, but we've had a fairly good lead for a while now. It would be more surprising if we didn't get the division. Business as usual.
