Blackhawks' Shaw ruled out for Game 3 vs. Wild

CHICAGO -- Forward Andrew Shaw will not play for the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of a Western Conference Second Round series Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center (9 p.m. ET; CNBC, TSN, RDS2).

Shaw, who missed Game 2 of the best-of-7 series Sunday with a lower-body injury that occurred in Game 1, did not make the trip. The Blackhawks will fly home following Game 3 and there is a chance that Shaw will make the return trip to play in Game 4 on Friday in St. Paul, Minnesota.

"We still think he's going on the next part of this trip and could play Friday," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said Monday during a press conference at O'Hare Airport.

Quenneville still labeled the injury "short-term."

Shaw, who has two goals and two assists in the seven games he's played in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, was hit by Wild defenseman Clayton Stoner at 10:34 of the first period in Game 1. He finished his shift, but didn't return to the game after leaving the ice.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
