Marian Hossa injury: Blackhawks forward 'likely' for Game 4

USA TODAY Sports

Marian Hossa is likely for Game 4, according to head coach Joel Quenneville.

Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa is likely to play against the Boston Bruins in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night, according to head coach Joel Quenneville on Tuesday.

Hossa missed Game 3 on Monday night due to an undisclosed upper-body injury. Despite taking part in warmups, Hossa was a game-time scratch. This led to speculation that the forward had been injured during warmups, with some under the impression that he had been struck by an errant puck.

However, Quenneville denied that the injury took place in warmups. Captain Jonathan Toews later stated that the team was already aware for a good portion of Monday that Hossa might not be available later that night. The extent of Hossa's injury is currently unknown. Quenneville previously stated that Hossa is considered day-to-day.

Hossa is currently tied for the team lead in points this postseason with 15 (seven goals, eight assists).
