by Tracey Myers @TraMyers_NHL / Staff Writer

When Marian Hossa missed last season with a progressive skin disorder, it left a huge void in the Chicago Blackhawks lineup. They lost a forward who was as good at preventing goals as he was at scoring them, who was a big part of every facet of their game, from 5-on-5 to the power play to the penalty kill.

Off-Day Notebook: Bouncing Back on Offense

Bruins stay off the ice; Cassidy provides update on Grzelcyk

by Michael Tolvo @NHLBruins / - In a game that saw them outshoot their opponents, 42-30, the Bruins fell to the opportunistic Maple Leafs on Monday night, 4-2 in Game 3 of their first-round series. While Games 1 and 2 of the series saw the Bruins find the back of the net seemingly at will, Game 3 provided an entirely new challenge. From hitting posts to spectacular saves, Boston seemed to be on the wrong end of things for the duration of the contest.

"We've obviously seen some pucks go in the net for us," defenseman Torey Krug said in reference to the Bruins' 12 combined goals in the first two games of the series. "This whole season we've been confident in scoring goals. It's one game. We've got to move on to the next one, get ready to go and make sure that we are capitalizing on those chances when we do get them. I don' think it's a frustrated group at all."
