Marian Hossa hurt in first game with Penguins, could miss a week

Pittsburgh forward Marian Hossa could be out for a week after injuring his knee in his first game for the Penguins on Thursday.
Acquired at the NHL trade deadline from the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday, Hossa banged knees with Glen Murray in the second period and left the game. The Slovak lasted only 13 shifts, didn't return to the game and Pittsburgh lost to the Boston Bruins 5-1.
"It was an accidental hit, knee-on-knee," Hossa said. "This is disappointing. I was trying to get comfortable with my linemates. But injuries happen, and this is the tough luck of the business we're in."
The five-time All-Star right wing has 26 goals and 30 assists in 61 games after tying for sixth in the NHL with 100 points last season.
