Newark, N.J. • Patrick Sharp is on one of those streaks. It seems almost every time he shoots, the puck ends up in the net.

Sharp had his second hat trick in five games, and the Chicago Blackhawks avoided a rare second straight loss with a 5-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

The 32-year-old Sharp has 14 goals and seven assists in his last 13 games. He has 25 goals in 44 games this season, tied for the team lead with Patrick Kane.

"I don't know numbers-wise," Sharp said when asked if he has ever had a run like this. "I think I've felt like this a few times in my career. It's the result of the good players I'm out there with making good plays, and all the hard work you put in as an individual."

Sharp combined with Kane and Marian Hossa to score in a span of 4:04 early in the third period to give the Blackhawks a 4-1 lead. When the Devils narrowed the margin to a goal with 6:23 to play, Sharp iced the game with a goal with 1:28 remaining for his fourth career hat trick.
