Shaw missed Game 6 with a concussion, the team announced Monday. Prior to getting hurt, Shaw was unable to add much in terms of offensive production as he tallied zero points, seven PIM, 13 shots on goal and three blocked shots during his five postseason outings. During the season, the winger was utilized as a power-play specialist -- averaging 15:12 of ice time with 2:12 coming on the power play -- but registered a mere lone goal and six helpers with the man advantage. Unless he can secure a larger role during the 2017-18 campaign, fantasy owners may want to pursue other options.
Shaw (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Rangers. Head coach Claude Julien confirmed that Shaw will not be playing in Game 6. Shaw has recorded 12 hits and three blocked shots in five playoff games, while averaging 15:01 of ice time. Michael McCarron will be filling in for the time being.
Shaw didn't practice Saturday due to an upper-body injury. Shaw's status for Saturday evening's Game 6 has yet to be confirmed, but he should be considered questionable at best at this juncture. If Shaw is unable to go, the recently recalled Michael McCarron will likely draw into the lineup.
Shaw scored his 12th goal of the season during Monday's win over Florida. It was Shaw's first goal in seven contests, improving him to 12 tallies and 29 points for the campaign. While the offensive numbers are hardly noteworthy, his 121 shots, 110 PIM and 140 hits are serviceable supporting statistics for deep formats. Shaw's playoff experience might also help him in postseason settings, especially with Montreal hopeful for a deep run this spring.
Shaw scored a goal and assisted on another in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Senators. Montreal scored first when Shaw one-timed a feed from Phillip Danault for his 11th goal of the season. He later returned the favor, getting the secondary assist for Danault. It was a rare night for the Habs, whose secondary scorers were prominent.
