Injured Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa will play in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals Saturday night, according to ESPN Chicago.

Hossa missed Friday's practice and Saturday's morning skate because of an upper body injury.

Jamal Mayers filled in for Hossa on the second line during Saturday's skate.

Hossa missed Game 3 of the series but played Game 4 on Wednesday. He had an assist and took four shots in just over 19 minutes of the Blackhawks' 6-5 win over the host Boston Bruins in overtime.

"He's fine; he's going to play," coach Joel Quenneville said. "It looks like he should be better.

Hossa is tied for second on the team with 16 points (seven goals and nine assists) in the playoffs.
