There's been no change in Marian Hossa's status and Andrew Shaw will be back in the lineup when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Phoenix Coyotes in Game 6 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series Monday night.

The Blackhawks had some unforeseen travel delays today and didn't land back in Chicago until around 7:30 tonight. Players didn't seem too fazed by the travel issues.

Coach Joel Quenneville said there's been no change in how Hossa is feeling after he was hit by Raffi Torres in Game 3. He ruled Hossa out for Game 6. But Shaw, who has served his three-game suspension for hitting Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith, is eligible to return and will be in the Game 6 lineup.

Quenneville didn't say who would come out of the starting lineup.
