08:16 AM ET 02.20 | Wednesday sets up as a significant day in Blackhawks history, which now includes tying the best start to an NHL season ever. But the big night was tempered by the sight of [Marian Hossa] prone, face-down on the ice, after taking a forearm to the back of the head from Vancouver's Jannik Hansen. ... "I saw him after the game, he seemed OK," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said of Hossa. "But we'll know more [Wednesday]." The play immediately conjured up the image of Hossa on the ice after taking an elbow from Phoenix's Raffi Torres during the playoffs last season. Hossa suffered a concussion on that hit and wasn't cleared until mid-November. "That's ugly and very unfortunate," Hawks captain Jonathan Toews said. ... "[We] hope that it's just a minor scare."

Hossa looked like a guy that could not be stopped in that second period.

That was a nasty, dirty cheap shot elbow. Hated seeing that crap.

"Forearm to the back of the head?"

Shame.

And typically the Hawks' thug Toews goes after Hansen.

As Hossa goes so go the Hawks. He's been playing possessed. That second goal he scored was a work of art. Don't see many like that anymore.

Agree

Until Hansen stopped him. With his elbow.I feel like this has been said a thousand times, but here's Shanny's chance to make a dent.

Exactly ! That elbow was a complete follow thru blow , in no way was it accidental. When a tool like Hansen can take out a Star like Hossa without Hossa's teammates beating the snot out of Hansen, the Players have a problem.

So does Hansen get the Torres sentence.

What do you expect from a Vancouver Canuck? A clean hit?

You should have heard the schills on CCCP1 (Canucklehead TV) calling the play.

Folks whine and snivel about play by play and colour guys but there is nobody more objectionable than John Friggin' Garrett.....

He should be take out somewhere and shot. He is beyond belief.

Oh and HAHA Canucks.......

And how 'bout those Canadiens??

That was one of the most gutless cheap shots I've seen since Matt Cooke reformed.

Primary contact with the head, contact came from behind. He better get at least a couple games for that.

Sedin shoulda skated over to Duncan Keith and asked how he likes them apples.

QUOTE(#10):

Exactly, and the tradeoff is supposed to be that goons like this are eradicated from the effing game.But Hansen will get 4 or 5 games and be back playing before Hossa. Because PROGRESS!

The league wants to administer punishment in these situations.. If the league does not act swiftly and forcefully, I am all for the players taking their own retribution on the ice.

Better yet. Kane should've skated over to the sisters and popped both of them in the mouth.

In Hansens defence Hossa goes down faster than an ugly girl on Saturday night. Canucks put up a good show last night against a raging hot team.

You're right. By now Hossa should have made some friends it's been three years.
