Hossa was a game-time scratch for Game 3 on Monday night due to an undisclosed upper-body injury, but was considered day-to-day and "likely" to play in Game 4. The forward did not participate in practice Wednesday morning, but that apparently will not play a factor in his availability for the actual game because every member of the organization who commented about Hossa's status after practice stated that he was expected to play.
Quenneville would not directly comment on his line combinations, but morning skate rushes indicate that Hossa will likely be paired with Michal Handzus and Patrick Sharp while Bryan Bickell is expected to be paired with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. Quenneville mentioned that Kane and Toews played well together in the Western Conference Final and hopes they can re-gain a similar amount of success.
Bruins head coach Claude Julien is expected to ice the same lineup as Game 3. And, considering the amount of success the Bruins have achieved with those combinations, it's a wise decision by the Bruins' bench boss.
Boston will carry a 2-1 series lead into Game 4 on Wednesday night.
