Patrick Sharp had seen the move before.

As a member of Team Canada

at the 2008 world championships in Halifax, Nova Scotia, he had stuck around after one of his games to watch Patrick Kane play for Team USA.

Sharp said he saw Kane conjure up the same kind of no-look, spin-o-rama move he improvised against Anaheim Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman to set up Marian Hossa's second-period goal Tuesday that had the United Center buzzing for minutes afterward.

''It's a heck of a play,'' Sharp said Wednesday. ''I don't think there's a lot of guys in the league that can do that.''
