GLENDALE, Ariz -- Chicago Blackhawks rookie forward Andrew Shaw could face supplemental discipline for his hit on Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith in the Hawks 4-3 overtime victory in Game 2 of their playoff series on Saturday.
At the 7:11 mark of the second period, Shaw hit Smith in the head with his shoulder as the two collided behind the Coyotes' net. Smith sprawled to the ice and was attended to by the trainers for several minutes but stayed in the game.
"He went to play the puck," Shaw explained after the game. "His stick came up towards my face and so I tried to get away from it and unfortunately I made a little contact. I'm glad he's OK."
