Blackhawks RW Marian Hossa returns after missing 1 game with mystery injury

BOSTON - Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa is set to return for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville says Hossa was expected to play Wednesday night against the Boston Bruins after missing Game 3 on Monday night with an upper body injury. Hossa was a late scratch from the lineup for that game. The Bruins won 2-0 and took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

"He's fine," Quenneville said.

Hossa is tied for the Blackhawks' scoring lead in the playoffs with 15 points on seven goals and eight assists. Three of those goals have been game-winners.

During the regular season, the right wing was third on the team with 17 goals.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
