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.

That said, Moulson’s been more than capably replaced on the third line by Matt Cooke, who has returned from suspension to provide great energy alongside Haula and Justin Fontaine.
