Blackhawks lose F Sharp for 3-4 weeks

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks say forward Patrick Sharp, among the NHL's top 10 scorers, will be out 3-4 weeks with an undisclosed upper-body injury.

Coach Joel Quenneville disclosed the news Monday. Sharp was injured late in the first period of Sunday's overtime loss to Detroit and did not return to the game.

Sharp has 20 goals and 20 assists in 42 games this season. As of Monday, he was the NHL's sixth-leading goal scorer.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
