Stu Grimson shares an update from today's morning skate at the United Center in Chicago:

Hey, that's why they pay Paul Gaustad the big bucks, right?

Huh?

Anyways, the Blackhawks will be short a pair of their top forwards as well:

Chicago Blackhawks forwards Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp will not play Monday against the Nashville Predators as they recover from upper-body injuries.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said they will be re-evaluated Wednesday and could play Thursday against the St. Louis Blues. Both players participated in Monday's morning skate at the United Center.
