CHICAGO -- Marian Hossa left the United Center in an ambulance.
That was after he was carted off the ice, his neck stabilized, his body supine.
That was after he lay on the ice for long, scary minutes as the United Center piped in “Blue Moon,” to chill out the crowd (it didn’t work) and cut replays from the scoreboard.
That was after Hossa’s head bounced off the ice.
That was after Torres, skating from behind, sized up Hossa like he was Brandon Meriweather on skates.
