Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Marian Hossa is expected to return to the Chicago Blackhawks' lineup for Wednesday's pivotal Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins.

Hossa, whose 15 points this postseason is tied for the team lead, sat out Monday's 2-0 loss to the Bruins after suffering an upper-body injury during pregame warmups. The three-time 40-goal scorer did not participate in Wednesday's morning skate as a precaution, but Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville acknowledged afterward that he is probable to play.

"He is expected to play tonight," said Quenneville. "He is fine."

Hossa, a 15-year NHL veteran with 434 career goals, has tallied seven goals and eight assists along with a plus-eight rating in 19 games during this year's playoffs.

Chicago enters Game 4 trailing the best-of-seven series 2-1 after losing the last two matchups with Boston.
