Blackhawks C Andrew Shaw out for Game 2 against Minnesota Wild due to lower body injury

CHICAGO - Center Andrew Shaw will miss Game 2 of the Chicago Blackhawks' playoff series against the Minnesota Wild due to a lower-body injury.

Shaw left Friday night's series opener after he was hit hard by Minnesota defenceman Clayton Stoner in the first period. Shaw appeared to be favouring his right side as he made his way off the ice.

Coach Joel Quenneville says Shaw will travel with the team to Minnesota for Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday night.

Quenneville also says forward Kris Versteeg likely will return to the lineup Sunday after he was scratched in each of Chicago's previous two playoff games.

For Minnesota, coach Mike Yeo says forward Justin Fontaine will be active in Game 2 and Stephane Veilleux will be among the scratches.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
