Last night, Patrick Sharp gave the Blackhawks an early 2-0 lead over the Red Wings with a slap shot from the slot.  Unfortunately, it looks like that’s the last time he’ll light the lamp for the Hawks for quite a while.

Joel Quenneville announced today that Sharp, the teams 3rd leading scorer, would miss 3-4 weeks with an upper body injury.
