The Blackhawks were already without rookie forward Andrew Shaw, who drew a five-game suspension for knocking Smith to the ice in Game 2. And there is no timetable for the return of Hossa, who led the team in regular-season points with 77.
Notes: For the second straight game, the Coyotes were without center Martin Hanzal and left wing Lauri Korpikoski, both of whom were injured in Game 2. ... Nineteen-year-old rookie LW Brandon Saad, who played two early games with the Blackhawks before spending the season in the Ontario Hockey League, appeared in his first postseason game. ... Chicago's Brandon Bollig and Phoenix's Paul Bissonnette fought early in the first period. Bissonnette got the better of the fight, but also got a game misconduct for not having his jersey strapped down.
