Per Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville, Hossa was expected to play on Wednesday night after missing Monday’s Game 3 tilt with an upper body injury, but did not do so. Chicago could have used his strong skillset on the ice as the Boston Bruins won the game 2-0 and in turn took a 2-1 advantage in what has been a very competitive series.
Quenneville did not say much to the media regarding this, only quipping “He’s fine” according to the report.
In the regular season he was equally as effective, ranking third on the team (behind Jonathan Toews and Kane) with 23 goals and 32 assists for a total of 55 points.
In what is a crucial game for Chicago, they now have another offensively dangerous player at their disposal, and for the Bruins, who are looking to take a authoritative 3-1 series lead, tonight’s game just got a little bit tougher.
