Andrew Shaw Out For Game 3

During media availability on Monday, the Blackhawks announced that Andrew Shaw will not be available for Game Three on Tuesday night. He hopes to return to the lineup on Friday.

On Sunday afternoon, coach Joel Quenneville opted to insert Jeremy Morin into the lineup with Kris Versteeg and Joakim Nordstrom; Brandon Bollig was a healthy scratch. On Monday, Quenneville said he was “looking for more” from Bollig moving forward. But, of course, Quenneville wouldn’t confirm his lineup for Tuesday evening’s game.

    Interesting, I heard Chris Koc on the radio this morning saying he was very confident Shaw would be ready and that he wouldn’t have made the trip if he wasn’t going to be available tomorrow. Wonder if he had a set back?

    SSHM, I’ll bet Shaw is fairly iffy and with the win going up 2-0, and game 4 not being until Friday, it gives Shaw’s knee quite a bit of extra time to heel. Its the right move. Bollig going back in isn’t. With Shaw out, this will be the same 4th line as in the STL series that got eaten alive…

    Q needs more from Bollig but hopefully that doesn’t mean he’s back in the lineup for Game#3 – he can look for more some other game … like in a game next October.

    I’d still like to see Regin get in a game. It seems like he would give you just about everything Nordstrom does and is certainly stronger on the puck.

  4. Sr. Brad says:

    Regin would be a good addition as well…can play wing or centre, smart player, can skate and move the puck.

    I think Q rolls with the same lines from game 2 or subs in Bollig for Nordstrom but I think Morin plays while Shaw is out.

    and I have to do this as we have won each time I have…

    Hawks Win!!! 10 more wins to go…. Go Hawks!!!

    I think Bollig comes back when Matt Cooke is off suspension for Game 4.

    Pete; I would tend to agree with you about Bollig and game 4, especially if Hawks win game 3. If they win game 3, I would not play Shaw till the game after a loss to the Wild.(If there is a loss.) The Wild seems to be a well coached, very disciplined team but going out of the playoffs two years in a row to the same team would be very frustrating. Would hate to see a cheap/retaliatory shot to Shaw cause any more lost time. After watching the Kings/Ducks games, one thing is for sure, the next series will be much much more physical than the Stl. series and we will need as many healthy bodies as possible.
