Friday was at times an evening of bad news for the Chicago Blackhawks, though not really major stuff.
The Blackhawks fell in a high-scoring affair to the Minnesota Wild, and that 5-4 outcome came in regulation to boot.
Sometimes such negative news comes in threes, so also note that Marian Hossa left the contest in the second period with a lower-body injury and did not return.
Again, this falls into the “likely not a big deal” category, at least according to early reports.
It’s not obvious how, exactly, he got hurt in this one (though if you noticed, feel free to share the cause in the comments).
