Marian Hossa skated with the Stanley Cup lifted above his head for the third time with the Blackhawks after making his fifth Final appearance in eight seasons. The 36-year-old marveled at the longevity of his career and the comparisons he's getting to Jaromir Jagr.

"There aren't many players like him," Hossa said of the 43-year-old Panthers forward. "But as long as I'm healthy and having fun, I would love to play."
