Andrew Shaw will again not be in the lineup on Tuesday night when the Blackhawks face off against the Minnesota Wild on the road in St. Paul at Xcel Energy Center. Shaw has not been on the ice since taking a hit from Clayton Stoner in the first period of Game #1 in the Western Conference Semi-final battle.
Andrew Shaw has been missed in the lineup especially on the road when the Blackhawks have struggled in Minnesota scoring only two goals in two games. Shaw has 2 goals and 2 assists in 7 games in the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs but it’s not his stat line that is missed by the Blackhawks but all of Shaw’s intangibles. Shaw is full of energy every night and although he takes his brain fart he’s doing all the little things from finishing off checks and putting his small frame in front of the net.
Bryan Bickell had this to say about missing Andrew Shaw in the lineup.

Andrew Shaw from reports hasn’t started skating so don’t look for him to be in the lineup if there is a Game #7 on Thursday night either.
#Blackhawks‘ Joel Quenneville on Andrew Shaw: “We said day-to-day at the beginning of the series, but now he’s a lot closer to day-to-day.”
