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 mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
