BOSTON (AP) - Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa was back in the lineup for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.
Hossa played after missing Game 3 on Monday night with an undisclosed upper body injury. Hossa was a late scratch from the lineup for that game. The Bruins won 2-0 and took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after the team's Wednesday morning practice, ``He's fine.''
Hossa is tied for the Blackhawks' scoring lead in the playoffs with 15 points on seven goals and eight assists. Three of those goals have been game-winners.
During the regular season, the right wing was third on the team with 17 goals.
