Two key forwards will be held out of tonight’s elimination game at Xcel Energy Center.
Chicago’s Andrew Shaw, who hasn’t played since suffering a right leg injury on a Clayton Stoner hit in Game 1 of this series, will miss his fifth straight game on Tuesday, head coach Joel Quenneville confirmed. Quenneville, who at the time of Shaw’s injury said the gritty forward was “day-to-day,” acknowledged that Shaw is actually more “day-to-day” now than he was at the beginning of the series, and is hoping to resume skating over the next 48 hours.
Shaw was a vital contributor for the ‘Hawks in their opening-round win over the Blues, scoring four points in six games.
As for the Wild, they’ll be without Matt Moulson for a third straight game due to a lower-body ailment. The 30-year-old winger has been something of a disappointment this postseason, scoring just three points in 10 games, but did register an assist on Erik Haula‘s game-winner in Game 3 versus the ‘Hawks and notched two points in the final three games of the Colorado series.
