Joel Quenneville is hopeful Marian Hossa will play Tuesday against the Phoenix Coyotes after the right winger missed practice Monday with an upper body injury.

Hossa, 32, did not play Saturday against the Boston Bruins after not practicing Friday.

Jonathan Toews said it's tough when Hossa isn't in the lineup, but the Hawks can't use his absence as an excuse.

"It's never easy to play without one of your top players," Toews said. "If it's one guy or [another] you adjust to what's going on and someone else steps up and assumes more responsibility and I don't think there's too many guys in this locker room that have a problem with that."
