Finals nothing new for Pronger, Hossa

CHICAGO (AP) — Chris Pronger and Marian Hossa (HOH'-sah) can't stay away from the Stanley Cup finals.

Some players spend their entire career chasing the Cup without ever having the chance to hoist it.

Pronger is back in the finals for the third time in five years with his third team, the Philadelphia Flyers. He was on a Cup winner with the Ducks in 2007 after losing as a member of the Oilers the previous year.

Hossa's trek is even more rare. He'll be playing in his third straight championship with a different team. He's lost his last two, first with the Penguins in 2008 and then last year as a member of the Red Wings when they fell to Pittsburgh and Sidney Crosby.

Game 1 is Saturday night in Chicago.
