Check Nashville vs Chicago live Odds & Picks

NHL Hockey Bet - Two years ago, playing with Pittsburgh, his team lost to Detroit. Last season, while with the Red Wings, he fell short against the Penguins. Two straight trips to the championship round, two straight losses.

“You’re always hungry,” Hossa said. “In one way it was disappointing. … But I consider myself lucky because not too many players go to the final anyway. It was a great experience, a tough finish and I’m looking forward for a better finish this year.”

Hossa, who needed shoulder surgery after joining the Blackhawks, finished with 24 goals and 27 assists in 57 games this season. After scoring 40 goals for the Red Wings last season, he played with the sore shoulder during the playoffs and managed just six goals in 23 postseason games—none in the finals.

“He’s a guy who wants to win and play for good hockey teams. He’s done that his whole career,” Nashville center David Legwand(notes) said. “That’s something to say about him. He always wants to play for a winner. … He played through pain in the playoffs last year.”

Hossa and top scoring threats Patrick Kane(notes) (30 goals, 88 points) and Jonathan Toews(notes) (25 goals, 68 points) will have to deal with Nashville defensemen Shea Weber(notes) and Ryan Suter(notes) and try to solve 6-foot-5 goalie Pekka Rinne(notes). Game 2 is Sunday at the United Center before the series shifts to Nashville.
