The Chicago Blackhawks announced forward Patrick Sharp
would miss 3-4 weeks with an upper-body injury sustained in Wednesday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.
In 24 games this season, Sharp has five goals and 18 points.
The Blackhawks meet the Avalanche again Friday at Pepsi Center (9 p.m. ET, NHLN-US), trying to extend their point streak to 25 games to start this season, and 31 stretching to the end of the 2011-12 regular season.
