from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,
“This is another great chance,” said Hossa, who signed a 12-year, $62.8 million deal with the Hawks on July 1. “The two times had disappointing ends, both of them. On the other hand I still consider myself lucky because some great players didn’t even go to the Stanley Cup finals. I know I didn’t win it but it’s the motivation again. It’s going to be a great challenge.”
That challenge gets under way Friday night at the United Center when the Hawks face the Predators in Game 1 of the playoffs. After rolling through a regular season that produced their first division title in 17 years and the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, the Hawks seem primed to make an even deeper run than last season’s team that fell to the Wings in the conference finals.
“We have a great team and great thing going here,” said Hossa, who had 24 goals and 27 assists in 57 games after returning from offseason shoulder surgery. “We all believe we can go all the way. Expectations are high and we’re looking forward to it.”
