Richards finding rhythm with Blackhawks

CHICAGO -- Brad Richards hasn’t arrived to where he wants to be in his game with the Chicago Blackhawks yet, but he does feel he’s in a better spot than he was when the season began. Richards had one of his better games Tuesday since joining the Blackhawks this season. He and Patrick Sharp nearly set up each other for a few goals against the Anaheim Ducks, but neither could locate the finishing touch.

Sharp admires Konerko's loyalty to Sox

CHICAGO -- Patrick Sharp wouldn't mind ending his career with the Chicago Blackhawks just as Paul Konerko did with the Chicago White Sox.

Sharp believes he and the Blackhawks have a similar bond. "Absolutely, [I'd like to end my career here]," Sharp said. "Kind of similar to Paulie, I started in the minors in the NHL with a different organization and [have] been here since 2005.
