Now, incredibly, Hossa and the Wings must beat the Pens in a Game 7 to determine the Stanley Cup champion. It’s a scenario not many envisioned prior to the start of the regular season—and certainly not when the Penguins were two games above the .500 mark in mid-February and fired coach Michel Therrien.
“Who would?” Hossa said when asked if he ever thought it would come down to this. “Would you? I don’t think many people, but the situation is right now how it is. I have to deal with it and we have to make sure we give it 100 percent and be good at home.”
Hossa’s certainly hoping to make more of a contribution on Friday, and more than he has in this series. He has just three assists through the first six games, and just three shots in the last two.
“It’s definitely frustrating,” said Hossa, who had just one shot on goal in 18:27 of ice time. “We didn’t play bad, but they scored two goals and we scored one. We didn’t create lots of clean chances.”
