Hello Andrew Shaw, Good-Bye Andrew Shaw

Andrew Shaw got in his first NHL game in over a month tonight against the Rangers at Bell Centre.

It didn't last that long. Shaw was given a five-minute major for interference on this hit against Rangers' forward Jesper Fast. He got a game misconduct, solidifying his return on the scoresheet: 5:19 of ice time, 22 PIMS, and 1 shot.

Fast was okay and has played on since the hit.

The Rangers lead Montreal 3-2 after two. Rangers goalie Antti Raanta was injured and replaced after the first period by Henrik Lundqvist.

Meanwhile, Carey Price's struggles continue in Montreal. He has the NHL's third-worst GAA since December 15th among goalies with eight or more games in that span.
