Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - Marian Hossa exacted his revenge against the
Phoenix Coyotes for ending his season early last year.
Hossa, who had to be taken off on a stretcher after a vicious check from
Phoenix forward Raffi Torres in Game 3 of their Western Conference
quarterfinal, posted a pair of goals in Sunday's rematch, as the Chicago
Blackhawks bested the Coyotes, 6-4, at Jobing.com Arena.
Torres still has six games left on his 21-game suspension, while Hossa bounced
back admirably from the cheap shot, registering two goals and an assist in
Chicago's season-opening win over the defending champion Los Angeles Kings.
Dave Bolland added two goals and an assist for the Blackhawks, who went on to
lose their postseason matchup against the Coyotes in six games.
Ray Emery made 25 saves in the victory.
Shane Doan, playing in his 1,200th NHL game -- all with Phoenix -- recorded a
goal and an assist, while Mike Smith allowed all six goals on 31 shots for the
Coyotes, who lost their opener on Saturday, falling 4-3 to the Dallas Stars.
