BlackhawksCHICAGO (AP) — Injured Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw will miss his fifth straight game against the Minnesota Wild in the Western Conference semifinal.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says Shaw’s lower-body injury is progressing, but he won’t make the trip for Tuesday night’s Game 6 in Minnesota. Chicago can eliminate Minnesota and advance to the Western Conference final.

Quenneville hopes Shaw will skate in the next day or so. Shaw sustained the injury during Game 1 of the series in Chicago.

Shaw had a career-high 20 goals and 19 assists during the regular season and scored twice in seven postseason games.
