The Blackhawks released the following statement from Head Team Physician Dr. Michael Terry:

"Marian Hossa suffered an upper body blow in the first period of tonight's game. After initial evaluation on the ice he was taken by ambulance to the hospital for further testing, which yielded encouraging results. He has been released from the hospital and we are monitoring him closely at home. We anticipate a full recovery in a timetable yet to be determined."

terrible last goal.

And absolutely Whats, that's pathetic nothing was called on torres. He's a goon and will not be missed in the playoffs. Shanny shouldn't let him back this year. (I say that expecting anything from a 5-10 could cause that to happen)

Torres needs to get sat down for a nice long time. Not because of that hit specifically, but because he does this **** constantly. Sack up Shanny and suspend the guy for a long time.

Same. I wanted the Coyotes to win up until that.

My crazy idea was that if a player gets a 3 game or more suspension during the playoffs then his name wont be on the Cup if they win

THAT will keep players from pulling stupid crap. YES its drastic but honestly it would work.

And exceptions could be made and players could appeal, so guys like Shaw could get his name on it despite being suspended 3 games, but Raffi wouldnt (assuming he gets 3 or more)

Its crazy but hey it just might work

Torres is such a gutless ***** he turtles after his cheap shot

I HATE that **** refs shouldn't protect clowns like that just let the other team kick the **** out of the guy

and its more frustrating that Torres was STILL on the ice after

I would expect Shanahan to come down very hard on Torres. If he does not then the blood is on his hands so to speak. It meets every criteria:

1- leaving his feet
2- predatory
3- repeat offender
4- intent to injure
5- player injury occurred

This is his chance to lay the smack down. 10 games

According to tsn there has been 7 suspensions total in the first week of the playoffs.

That's more than the 2011 playoffs had all together.

I blame officiating.

You have to blame the players too.....lots of bone-headed decisions being made on ice (EX: James Neal/Carkner/Asham/ETC...).

The game has gotten too malicious....don't get me wrong, I love physical hockey.....but some of the players are just trying literally end careers.....it's as tho the saint D coach is giving the pre-game speeches.

I agree 100% the officiating stinks. It is a huge part of the problem. There is no consistency and I also think a lot of refs are poor at game management when things start to get out of hand (although I actually kind of think the refs for the Pens Flyers game did a decent job-they removed players who were problems and mostly called penalties as they came-those teams just hate each other and the Pens were ridiculously provoking).

If there is any goal for this summer it is to get all the officials on the same page with regards to calls and how to call them (where they have discretion what does the league feel is a 2 min, vs 4, vs 5 and a game).

Torres is a punk though. I have always thought he was a dangerous hitter (he is the definition of charging) and he always seems to get by with crap. He got to elbow 3 people in the head in three successive games before he was suspended and he already had a history for bad hits).

I hope Hossa is okay.

I hope the league figures things out. I think one direciton the league probably needs to go is punishing the action and not to the injury. If a player makes a dangerous play or hit and the victim is lucky enough to not be injured, that doesn't make the play less dangerous or reckless-it just makes the victim very lucky.

Refs and linesmen need to spend the summer reviewing video and trying to get on the same page. That would go a long way towards making the game better and the players less confused (because I really think the all over the place reffing has left the players unsure of what is and isn't a penalty).
