Ah, yes. Now that the
Patrick Sharp scored on the power play and assisted on Cody Eakin's overtime winner for a two-point night Thursday.
The wily veteran pulled through for his team to even up the series at 2-2, scoring his first two points of the series. He was held without a point with a minus-4 rating entering Game 4. He's expected to play a major role if the Dallas Stars want to advance to the western Conference Final.
Patrick Sharp scored his third goal of the playoffs and added an assist in Sunday's series-clinching Game 6 win over the Wild.
A strong showing from Sharp, who also fired four shots on goal. The veteran lit the lamp twice in Game 3, but was held off the scoresheet in four of the six first-round games. The 34-year-old is a proven playoff scorer who will be a key player for the Dallas Stars in the second round, especially if they end up playing Sharp's former team the Blackhawks.
The Thunder Bay native also fired a game-high seven shots on goal, which actually made up 41 percent of Dallas' shots (17) in the contest. The goals were Sharp's first playoff points as a Star and give him 83 in 132 career playoff games, so look for him to continue to provide elevated secondary scoring and the type of veteran savvy expected from a three-time Stanley Cup winner.
Patrick Sharp scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength helper in 14:02 of ice time in a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Saturday.
The goal was Sharp's 18th of the season, but only his second since Jan. 3. The winger has had a rough March, playing in only six games in the month and posting a minus-7 rating. The 34-year-old is on pace for the second lowest goal output of his career, not counting 2012 when he only played in six games.
