Hossa, Demitra, Gaborik bolster Slovak roster and medal hopes

Slovakia's medal hopes at the hockey World Championships were bolstered Monday with the arrival of NHL scoring stars Marian Hossa, Pavol Demitra and Marian Gaborik.
All three are slated to play in Slovakia's final preliminary round Group C game against Germany on Tuesday.
Hossa was the Atlanta Thrashers' team leader this season with 43 goals and a career-high 100 points. Demitra and Gaborik were the top scorers for the Minnesota Wild.
"This will be very good for us," said Minnesota Wild forward Branko Radivojevic, who has been with Slovakia from the start of the tournament. "It will strengthen the team. Our chances are getting bigger."
