Hossa, Blackhawks Head to Phoenix off Strong Opener
Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

Marian Hossa must have a different definition of "slow-build" than everyone else, because the previously concussed Chicago Blackhawks forward already appears to be in midseason form. "You wonder how he [would] handle that first game," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "It looked like his pace was as good as he could go." Hossa scored twice and added an assist Saturday when the Blackhawks defeated the Los Angeles Kings, 5-2, at Staples Center. It was his first game since he was last seen leaving the ice on a stretcher after getting blasted by an illegal high hit from Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres in Game 3 of last season's Western Conference Quarterfinals.
