Patrick Sharp celebrates birthday with hat trick

It's been quite a day for Patrick Sharp. It's not only his birthday, but he also recorded a hat trick.

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp celebrated his 32nd birthday on Friday, then went out on the ice and recorded a hat trick against the Colorado Avalanche.

Here's a look at all three goals, which gave him 21 on the season.

For Sharp, it's his seventh 20-goal season in the past eight years, with last year's lockout-shortened season being the only year over that stretch that he did not top the 20-goal mark.
