Injured forward Sharp to miss Blackhawks' game at Colorado

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks say injured forward Patrick Sharp will miss Friday's game at Colorado.

Sharp left Wednesday's 3-2 home win over the Avalanche with what looked like a shoulder injury after being checked along the boards by Colorado's Ryan O'Byrne. Coach Joel Quenneville said afterward Sharp might miss some time.

The Blackhawks also said Marian Hossa was travelling with the team after being scratched from Wednesday's game with an upper body injury, as was Andrew Shaw after taking an elbow to the chin from Paul Stastny.

Michael Frolik (illness) was expected to meet the team in Denver before Friday's game.

The Blackhawks also recalled forward Brandon Bollig from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
