Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Kris Versteeg (twice), Brad Richards: in convincing fashion, the Chicago Blackhawks got their offense back on Tuesday night.

Unfortunately, they may have lost a key teammate for a bit.

Toews tallied his 200th career goal and 250th assist, but Patrick Sharp suffered an apparent right leg injury and could be out “a bit” in the Blackhawks’ 5-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens. It was a bittersweet game for the Blackhawks, whose offense outburst was a welcome sight; losing Sharp, however, wasn’t.

Quenneville said Sharp could be out “a bit,” but would know more in the next day or two. Quenneville used that term on Versteeg and Daniel Carcillo’s injuries earlier this season. Versteeg was out about two weeks and Carcillo’s sidelined for four.

“Those things can happen. It was one of those hits going into the puck area,” Quenneville said of defenseman Alexei Emelin’s hit on Sharp, after which Sharp put little weight on his right leg when helped to the locker room. “Tough break.”

The injury also overshadowed a great outing for Corey Crawford, who collected his 11th career shutout in his hometown. Crawford was stellar early when the Canadiens pushed the pace; he stopped 28 shots for his first shutout of this season.

“It’s pretty special, growing up here and coming to watch games, living the Canadiens when I was younger,” Crawford said with a smile. “I thought our game was pretty solid. It started with our (penalty kill) in the first. We got our touch offensively, moving quick in the offensive zone. It’s nice to see guys put some goals up.”
