NHL notebook: Blackhawks center Shaw questionable for Game 2
Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw is questionable for Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Wild on Sunday because of a lower-body injury.
Coach Joel Quenneville said Saturday he doesn't expect Shaw to be out for an extended period.
Shaw was injured in Friday's series-opening win; it was not clear when he was hurt.
He left the bench and missed the final eight minutes of the first period. The Blackhawks announced at the start of the second that he would not return.
Shaw had two goals and two assists in Chicago's first-round series against St. Louis.
• Wild coach Mike Yeo said there is no change to Darcy Kuemper's status and added that the goalie wasn't in Chicago, meaning IIya Bryzgalov likely will start Game 2. Kuemper is sidelined by an upper-body injury.
