ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Patrick Sharp rejoined the Chicago Blackhawks machine as if he was never gone. Marian Hossa provided the welcome-back gift. Hossa's unassisted goal late in the second period lifted the NHL-leading Blackhawks to their fifth win in six games, 1-0 over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night. Ray Emery started for the Blackhawks for the third straight game and made 20 saves for his second shutout in that stretch and third of the season. He helped hand the Wild their fifth loss in seven games.
