Marian Hossa's undisclosed upper-body injury is improving and he will make the trip to Phoenix and Colorado when the Chicago Blackhawks leave later today.

Coach Joel Quenneville is hopeful that Hossa, who has not practiced or played since the Winnipeg game last Wednesday, can play against the Phoenix Coyotes tomorrow night.

Goaltender Corey Crawford will start against the Coyotes.
