ESPN Chicago's Jesse Rogers updated the Andrew Shaw situation on Monday evening; the Chicago Blackhawks forward isn't going to hear the league's ruling on his hit until Tuesday. Rogers speculates that it could be tied to Mike Smith's status for Tuesday night's game.
I just confirm decision on shaw is tomorrow...has to come before game time...dont know why not today...could be smith health?— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiHawks) April 16, 2012
Rogers guesses that either both will play, or both won't.
Shaw met with officials in the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Monday, and most expected a decision from the league later in the day.
