Chicago Blackhawks hope to get C Andrew Shaw back in Western Conference final

CHICAGO - Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says centre Andrew Shaw should be back on the ice this weekend and could return during the Western Conference finals.

Shaw has been out with a lower-body injury since Game 1 of Chicago's second-round series against Minnesota. He was hit hard by Wild defenceman Clayton Stoner, and appeared to be favouring his right side as he made his way off the ice.

Quenneville says the team will know more about Shaw's status after he skates this weekend.

The Blackhawks practiced Thursday for the first time since they eliminated the Wild with a 2-1 overtime win in Game 6 on Tuesday night. The defending Stanley Cup champions will play again Sunday against the winner of the Los Angeles-Anaheim series.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
