Marian Hossa will miss his third straight game tonight, but he did pay a visit to his Blackhawks teammates this morning at the United Center.

There’s no official update on Hossa’s status; however, a Chicago Sun-Times source said the ‘Hawks star is feeling much better since being checked in the head by Coyotes forward Raffi Torres on Tuesday.

“It’s good to see him,” coach Joel Quenneville said, as per CSNChicago.com. “I talked to him last night and (it’s good) seeing him here today. There’s no news, but I’m sure his teammates are glad to see him, as well.”

Chicago needs to beat Phoenix tonight in Game 6 then again Wednesday in Glendale or it’ll be a second consecutive first-round exit for the 2010 Stanley Cup champs.

    So was he wearing anything that would confirm the possibility of a broken jaw? Or is it another one of those “undisclosed upper body injuries?”

      You know the Hawks, a bad haircut is an upper body injury to them. They won’t tell the media anything.

        Why would anyone want the other team to know exactly where a guy’s hurting?
