"It'll be nice to get him going here," Quenneville said of Sharp before Sunday's game. "We probably added a couple extra days here to his time away. He's been skating well, and he wants to play. Look forward to getting him in the lineup because it gives us a lot more options with the lines as well." Sounds like Sharp is ready to go, get him in your lineup.
