Marian Hossa leaves hospital, doesn’t comment



The early reports on Marian Hossa’s condition were far from promising. He left the ice on a stretcher and the United Center in an ambulance, with most saying he was “out cold.” Chris Kuc wasn’t able to get a comment out of Hossa, but there’s some relatively good news: the Chicago Blackhawks star reportedly left the hospital and exited in a “waiting car.”

That doesn’t provide much information on the severity (or specificity) of his injuries or his chances of playing in Game 4 and the series overall, yet it’s something. For those who were worried about Hossa’s bodily health, it sounds like he’s OK - at least relatively speaking.
