It’s early in Wednesday’s Game 7 between the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings, but there’s already some controversy.

Andrew Shaw is likely going to have a target on his back after this incident with Valtteri Filppula:

CSNChicago.com’s Pat Boyle reports that Filppula underwent an X-ray and was seen on crutches, so it’s hard to fathom him coming back tonight, even with the popular “hockey players are tough” refrain in mind.

Update: the CBC’s Cassie Campbell confirms that he won’t return.
