Hossa doesn't care about Amonte
BOSTON - Marian Hossa returned to the Blackhawks’ lineup Wednesday for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final after sitting out Monday with an undisclosed injury and had an assist in the 6-5 overtime win over the Bruins.
“I felt so-so, but the decision was for me to play and I’m glad I could help a little bit,” Hossa said. “It was a huge game from everybody. That’s how we are going to beat this team.”
The series is now tied 2-2 with Game 5 at the United Center on Saturday night.
Hossa took some heat from former Hawk Tony Amonte for not playing in Game 3. Amonte is serving as a guest analyst for CSN New England and a Boston radio station during the series.
“I don’t really care what Tony Amonte says,” Hossa said.
“Look, if you cannot go, you cannot go. “You almost feel useless there. Today was a different decision, one extra day so I decided I can help a little bit and I’m glad we won.”
Hossa is looking forward to Game 5.
“We wanted to come to Boston and win at least one game and we’re glad to get the second one,” Hossa said. “So the series is tied and it’s good momentum for us. It’s going to be another battle at home, but we have to play a strong game like we did tonight.”
