CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw will not play against the Minnesota Wild in Game 6 of their Western Conference second-round series Tuesday due to a lower-body injury, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said on Monday.

Shaw will miss his fifth consecutive game due to the injury. Quenneville said Shaw is considered day-to-day and is expected to begin skating again in the next few days.

"He's progressing, but he's not on the trip," Quenneville said.

Shaw was injured after taking a hit from Wild defenseman Clayton Stoner in the first period during Game 1 on May 2. Shaw was hit into the boards and fell to the ice. He limped off the ice and went to the dressing room and did not return for the remainder of the game.

Shaw has two goals, two assists, a zero rating and has averaged 15:54 of ice time in seven playoff games this season. He had 20 goals, 19 assists and a plus-12 rating in 80 regular-season games.

The Blackhawks lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is at 8 p.m. CT Tuesday in Minnesota.
