For the first time in seven games, the Boston Bruins actually fell behind.
Should Shawn Thornton receive 10 games for slew footing Brooks Orpik and knocking him unconscious? More?
Marian Hossa is one of the Chicago Blackhawks' top scorers, with three game-winning goals already this postseason.
Hossa's surprise scratch from Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals — and the one-word explanation, "upper," for the part of his body that was injured — is part of a long-running cat-and-mouse game NHL teams play on the theory that any information about injuries is a competitive disadvantage.

"I'm glad it went in," Thornton said. "Everyone had a lot of chances tonight and it was a little bit frustrating for us until then. I mean, we were creating a lot of stuff, but nothing was going in. Happy we got rewarded for some hard work eventually."
