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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
