My take is to let Hossa and the trainers decide but I see no reason not to show a little caution with this decision.
I know it's a 3-0 lead but as inconceivable as it may seem, that can change in a hurry. It all comes down to how 'not 100%' he is. If he is really hurting to the point where they feel resting him would do wonders then yes they should rest him. If it's just resting for the sake of resting, well then he'll get plenty of rest before the start of round two as long as they put the Thrashers away quickly... and he can be a big help in doing that. But he obviously has been bothered by the knee in the past couple games and it is a back to back situation. I think the coaches will do what's best.
