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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
