Sharp collected a power-play goal in Wednesday's double-overtime victory over the Predators in Game 1 of the first-round series.

Sharp's goal was one of three the Blackhawks supplied in the second period, tying the game after the Predators raced out to a 3-0 lead after the first 20 minutes. While this season has qualified as a disappointment for Sharp, he still might make for a good value play in daily formats during the playoffs due to his presence on the Hawks' powerful second power-play unit.

Sharp just had a rest day on Wednesday as the reason for not skating in Blackhawks' morning practice, but will be in the lineup on Thursday against the Canucks, CSN Chicago reports.

Sharp's numbers are down this year -- 14 goals and 26 assists -- part of that is due to missing time with a leg injury, but his play has contributed to the Blackhawks sputtering at times on offense this season. In his career against the Canucks, Sharp has 10 goals and six assists in 30 games.

Sharp tallied a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes.

Sharp ended a 19-game goalless slump on March 14, and didn't have to wait quite as long for the next one as he found the back of the net yet again four games later. The 33-year-old has turned in eight pointless performances in his last 11 outings, but each of the three times he managed to get on the scoresheet were multi-point efforts. The winger is having one of the worst seasons of his career, but he's still capable of providing enough to make him worth keeping around.

Sharp notched two assists and went plus-4 in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Islanders.

The line of Sharp, Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa dominated this game, with that trio combining for eight points and a plus-12 rating. It's been a down year for Sharp, who's starting to fade noticeably at age 33, but he's ripped off four points and a plus-7 rating in the last two games after going six straight off the scoresheet.

Sharp broke out of his 19-game goalless slump in a big way Saturday, sniping a pair of goals and skating to a plus-3 in a 6-2 win over the Sharks.

Sharp got the party started 6:03 into the first, and added a second snipe for good measure with just under five minutes remaining in the third. His recent goal-scoring woes have been well documented, but he hasn't even been contributing in the assist department either, having recorded just two helpers in the aforementioned 19 games. It's hard not to consider him an elite fantasy option given his recent success (34 goals, 78 points, 313 SOG, plus-13 last year), but with just 12 goals and 22 assists this season, he remains one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of 2014-15.

Sharp is looking to end a goal drought on Saturday that has lasted since Jan. 28, CSN Chicago reports.

Sharp has eight goals and 14 assists in his career against Saturday's opponent, the Sharks. While Sharp missed some time with a leg injury, his 10 goals and 22 assists is probably his worst season since 2008-09 where he collected 26 goals and 18 assists in 61 games. In 2012-13 he missed extensive time with a wrist injury and compiled six goals and 14 assists in 28 games. The Blackhawks' mix this season on offense has definitely not helped Sharp this season.

Sharp picked up an assist in Tuesday's shootout win over the Panthers.

It was the first point in nine games for Sharp, ending his longest scoring drought of the season. Sharp's ice time had been on the decline amid his struggles, but with the Blackhawks losing Patrick Kane (upper body) to a long-term injury Tuesday, Sharp should be in line for an uptick in minutes. The Blackhawks will be counting on him and other supporting wingers like Kris Versteeg and Brandon Saad to ramp up their production in Kane's absence.

Sharp had a big Friday night with four assists in the Blackhawks' 4-1 victory over the Ducks.

It was his third, four-assist game in his career with the last coming in the fall of 2013. After a recent three-game points' drought, Sharp has a goal and 8 assists in his last five games. With the four assists Sharp has 10 goals and 20 assists in 35 games. He won't reach his career high of last season with 34 goals and 44 assists, but that is mainly due to a leg injury where he missed 14 games earlier in the season.

Sharp notched a power-play goal and an assist in Wednesday's loss to the Kings.

Both of Sharp's tallies came in the first period, giving him his second multi-point outing in three games. Last season's 78-point campaign will probably go down as the high point for his career, but the 33-year-old Sharp still scores with enough frequency to warrant a roster spot in any format.

Sharp dished out a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Coyotes.

It's been a down campaign for Sharp, but he's been looking better over the last couple games, notching three assists (two of them on the man advantage). With only nine goals to show for 136 shots, he's well off his career shooting percentage, but Sharp is still shooting as often as ever, so it's reasonable to assume that he'll find his way into the goal column more often in the season's second half.
