If everything goes as planned, forward Andrew Shaw will return to the Chicago’s lineup for Game 3 on Saturday after missing roughly three weeks with a leg injury.

Blackhawks coach coach Joel Quenneville is excited to see the 22-year-old’s return. Shaw will likely center the third line and provide the team with another secondary scoring threat as well as some more grit.

“We’ve missed his presence in the lineup,” Duncan Keith told CSN Chicago. “He’s a good guy to have on the team, be it on the ice providing that energy or in the locker room. We look forward to having him back.

“He’s a versatile player when it comes to what he provides on the ice, be it in front of the net, going to the hard areas or playing different positions. He’s a big part of our team.”

Chicago is looking to bounce back after coughing up a 2-0 lead by allowing six unanswered goals against Los Angeles on Wednesday. That defeat tied the series and cost Chicago its home ice advantage.

      how do you blame him for so much when CORE PLAYERS making 5 times more in their contracts didn’t do anything ? the penalty he got was very questionable to say the least…oh, and yes he did get an assist….. something that a lot of the superstars did not accomplish. a lot of you guys that rake him over the coals would probably wish he was there if the going got rough. there are not too many others to step up in that situation……………. are there ?

        he tries to be a tough guy instead of skating and playing hockey. he’s not needed in the playoffs. he is necessary in the regular season to be the tough guy

        @ tfilarski , even Q put that line back together because of the good they did for the team ( not my thinking…it was on an article ) . he has his job and the high priced scorers have their jobs ( which they did not get accomplished lately ) , blaming him for a loss is like blaming a doctor when someone dies because they didn’t take their medicine.
