Confidence hasn't been an issue for Patrick Sharp this season. Whether he's putting pucks in the net or creating chances for his teammates, he's consistently contributed in one way or another as the year's progressed. Lately the points are flying Sharp's way, and on Wednesday his confidence continued to show in numbers as he scored his eighth point in three nights by tallying a goal and two assists in the Blackhawks' 7-2 win over the Flyers. "Confidence is fine, it's been good all year," Sharp said after the game. "I think the last couple games our power play's been key, scoring multiple goals on the power play definitely helps for the individual stats, but personally my confidence has been good all year." His teammates took notice as Sharp went on to record his seventh multi-point game of the season. But it's not just about the points when it comes to Sharp's game; that's only one piece of the puzzle. "He's been great all year," captain Jonathan Toews said. "When pucks weren't going in for him, he was still creating, still making things happen and I think people take notice when a player like that starts scoring a little more often. Whether it's on the power play, he's getting all his shots through and he's been great from the point.
Sharp's versatility continues to pay off for Blackhawks
