Chicago Blackhawks Are Missing Marian Hossa and It Showed Monday Night

It was a tough loss for the Chicago Blackhawks Monday night. The team was coming off a stellar win against Minnesota Saturday, and with Brian Campbell back in the lineup for the first time this season, the Blackhawks were amped for another win.

The New York Rangers had different plans. 

With 35 hits and 33 shot blocks, the Rangers bullied themselves into a 3-2 victory over the Blackhawks. Those stats are a coach's dream, and the Blackhawks had reason to suspect such a tough matchup, but they came just a little unprepared for such a physical battle. 

It could be said that Blackhawks needed that extra physical force on the team. Too bad that player is currently injured with an upper body injury. 

I am talking about Marian Hossa.

People knew his injury last week would have a tremendous impact on the Blackhawks in their defense and offense game. Hossa, before the injury, had seven goals, four assists and a plus/minus rating of positive-four. He was on track to finally get that 40+ goals a season the Blackhawks had hoped he'd do with them. 

Once again it was cut short by injury.
