CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp will miss his second consecutive game Monday against the Dallas Stars due to an upper-body injury.

Sharp also sat out Sunday's game against the St. Louis Blues due to the injury. He recently missed 14 games due to an upper-body injury and had returned for two games before his latest injury.

Coach Joel Quenneville expects Sharp back on the ice on Tuesday and isn't worried about him being ready for the playoffs.

"I think there's enough time to get ready," Quenneville said. "With practice, he'll be skating. We should have enough time to get him back."

Sharp has five goals and 13 assists in 26 games this season.
