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

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
