"When a guy gets carried off on a stretcher, you think there might be something wrong with what happened?" Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said after the game. "It's pretty frustrating."

Hossa was taken off the ice by stretcher and taken to the hospital where he was released later Tuesday night. In a release, the Blackhawks said they "anticipate a full recovery (for Hossa) in a timetable to be determined."
