Patrick Sharp chalks up his success this season to just about everything.

He credits being on the opposite wing from Marian Hossa for the first time, the effectiveness of the Blackhawks' power play, the coaches using him in all situations and so on.

Sharp, who'll turn 30 Dec. 27, is not as young as some of his teammates, but he's still capable of improving year after year. He's showing he can still be one of the best left wings in the NHL.

"I don't know if it's any one thing in particular," Sharp said. "We have a good team this year, and we're healthy. Hopefully, we can stay that way. I don't know if it's a hot streak or luck, but I feel like I'm working hard, and we're working hard as a line."
