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.
Marian Hossa is one of the Chicago Blackhawks' top scorers, with three game-winning goals already this postseason.
In the corner of the Boston Bruins' locker room, hanging from the hooks in Andrew Ference's stall, is a yellow running singlet with the team's "Spoked B" logo on the front.
Hendricks had six fighting majors through the Caps' first 27 games, more than the rest of his teammates combined. He fought twice Saturday at the Boston Bruins in a game that underscored how much this team needs Hendricks to answer the bell when opponents take liberties.
The Capitals were bruised and battered after the whistles and between them got blown out of the building 4-1 by the Bruins. Goaded into fights and involved in a lot of pushing and shoving, they fell into the trap of playing Boston's physical style.
Troy Brouwer and his wife, Carmen, knew their first child was on the way, due in mid-October. Kylie Marie was born Oct. 14, about a month into the NHL lockout.
Jordan Staal got chills.
As the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft, Tyler Seguin probably didn't expect to sit out playoff games last season as a healthy scratch. His first two games back, he piled up six points and played a key role in the Boston Bruins' Stanley Cup run.
Dale Hunter was no saint as a player, but as a coach he made it clear he wasn't happy that the Boston Bruins were targeting Nicklas Backstrom's head. The Washington Capitals coach said it crossed the line and was "not the right way to play."
This might be the last thing fans and critics on one side of the longest-running debate in hockey want to hear, especially in light of the rising number of concussions:
The Stanley Cup glistened in the morning sun, the nearly 35-pound symbol of NHL supremacy raised high over the head of 255-pound Zdeno Chara.
The Bruins were facing elimination in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals, and Mark Recchi knew just how to keep his teammates focused.
There goes the shutout.
And the gloves are off.
Just about every whistle is bringing fisticuffs now.
Boston Bruins right wing Shawn Thornton argues a call during the second period of an NHL hockey game against the Florida Panthers, Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013, in Boston.
Bruins forward Shawn Thornton, who is among the Bruins who developed a friendship with Carr, said he is glad the hockey team has brought the city some happiness.
