Chicago Blackhawks’ Marian Hossa Questionable For Game 4

It was a big shock for everyone when Chicago Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa was a late scratch for Monday night’s Game 3 against the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals. Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville provided an update on Hossa’s status following the team’s Game 3 loss, and he let it be known that Hossa will officially be considered day-to-day because of the injury he suffered during pre-game warm ups.

While people on the outside, including Bruins head coach Claude Julien, were surprised by Hossa’s absence, his teammates knew that it would be a possibility after Coach Quenneville told the team Hossa would be a “game-time decision” earlier in the day.

We will all continue to keep a close eye on Hossa leading up to Game 4. As we saw during tonight’s game, the Blackhawks could certainly benefit from the star wingers return to the line up.

If Hossa is unable to go again in Game 4, you can expect Ben Smith to once again get the start.
