BOSTON - The mysterious circumstances behind the injury that sidelined Chicago wing Marian Hossa for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final remain, so much so that Blackhawks center Dave Bolland wasn't even sure if he'd seen Hossa around. "No, I don't know if I've seen him," Bolland said, the day after Hossa was a late scratch because of an upper-body injury. Coach Joel Quenneville wouldn't reveal the nature of Hossa's injury or when it occurred, but he did shed light on the veteran's status for Game 4 on Wednesday night at TD Garden.

BOSTON - Marian Hossa was on the ice during warmups and then he was not. Injured while the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins prepared for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night at TD Garden, Hossa was scratched from the lineup and Chicago's' chances to even the series took a disastrous hit before the puck dropped. Looking out of sorts after losing one of their top players, the Blackhawks sputtered offensively, hung on for dear life in the defensive zone and were a train wreck on the power play before eventually succumbing to Boston, 2-0, in front of 17,565.

An 85-year-old Beverly Hills building erected in the golden age of Hollywood by movie mogul Jack Warner has been sold for $11.75 million to a local investor. The two-story structure that curves along Little Santa Monica Boulevard downtown at North Beverly Drive is one of the oldest commercial properties in the city, real estate broker Mark Esses said. Warner built the 11,000-square-foot building in 1928 to house the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce. The young city had yet to open a public library, The Times reported early in 1929, but one was being planned.

James DePreist, artistic advisor to the Pasadena Symphony and Pops and one of the few African American conductors to lead major orchestras in the United States and abroad, died Friday at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was 76. The cause was complications of a heart attack he had last spring, said his manager, Jason Bagdade. DePreist overcame polio in his 20s to pursue a conducting career that took him to stages from Sweden to Japan over four decades. His longest and most distinguished tenure was with the Oregon Symphony, where he was music director from 1980 to 2003, a period when that orchestra gained national and international renown.

SAN FRANCISCO - They were known simply as the San Francisco Twins. At 5-foot-1 and about 100 pounds apiece, the fashion enthusiasts were an integral part of the city fabric for four decades. With matching furs, hats and high-end purses, they completed each other's sentences, posed for countless tourist snapshots and modeled for the likes of Reebok, Joe Boxer and IBM. Now one is gone. Vivian Brown, 85, who had Alzheimer's, died in her sleep Wednesday, leaving behind Marian, who was eight minutes younger.

The leading candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri apparently learned reproductive biology from scholarship dating back to King John and Magna Carta, but that's not what's really scary about the story of GOP Rep. Todd Akin. Akin set off a tempest Sunday when a TV interviewer inquired about his views on abortion in cases of rape. "It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, [that pregnancy resulting from rape is] really rare," Akin said. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.
