Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said that right winger Marian Hossa is likely to play in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins, reports

Game 4 is Wednesday night and Boston leads the best-of-seven series two games to one.

Hossa missed Game 3 with an upper-body injury and the team listed him as day-to-day. Hossa has seven goals and eight assists this postseason. Quenneville was less than forthcoming about the type of injury Hossa suffered. 

"I'm not going to get into exactly what the injury is or where it occurred, but I'm going to say he's likely to play tomorrow night," Quenneville said.
