Marian Hossa is recovering from injuries after being hit in the chin.

    Hossa was near the boards at center ice and had just turned and passed the puck when Phoenix's Raffi Torres left his skates and delivered a late shot with his shoulder that knocked Hossa to the ice.

    Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa, who already missed game 4 of the Western Conference Playoffs after absorbing a vicious hit from Coyote's forward Raffi Torres, will now miss Game 5, too.

    The Hawks face elimination in Game 5 in Phoenix.

    Hossa was hauled off the United Center ice and taken to Northwestern Hospital after the Game 3 hit.

    Hockey fans won’t be seeing Torres on the ice for Game 5 either, as he was suspended indefinitely and has a disciplinary hearing with the NHL on Saturday.
