Hockey: Third time's a charm for Hossa

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — This was one hat trick Marian Hossa wanted no part of turning.

The Stanley Cup finals had become Hossa's personal playground each of the last three years with different clubs. Although the star forward had gotten as far as the championship round several times, he was never able to seal the deal and raise the coveted silver chalice over his head.

Until now.

Hossa can finally call himself a Stanley Cup champion, finishing on the right side when the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 in overtime of Game 6 on Wednesday night.

"It's a huge relief," the 31-year-old forward said. "It feels much better not to have to answer these questions anymore."

Those probing questions followed him from Pittsburgh to Detroit and then to Chicago.

The first person to carry the Cup after NHL commissioner Gary Bettman handed it to 22-year-old Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews was Hossa, whose 12th season in the league became his most rewarding.
