CHICAGO -- It was suggested to Patrick Sharp on Friday that this year's Conn Smythe race has been a challenging one to handicap because of how team-oriented the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins are. On both teams, players up and down the lineup have shared in the success.

Perhaps to plant a seed, Sharp moved out of the way of the nameplate in front of his dressing room stall as a subtle suggestion that he'd be a good vote. He got a laugh but then followed it up with an honest assessment: The success of these two teams hasn't been about any one star.
