Blackhawks Head Home After 6-1 Win Over CBJ
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp each had a goal and two assists and the Chicago Blackhawks ended a lengthy nine-game road swing with a 6-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

Patrick Kane added a goal and a helper and Viktor Stalberg continued his magic touch against the Blue Jackets with a goal. Stalberg has scored eight times against Columbus in five games this season, matching his total against the rest of the NHL in 51 games.

Corey Crawford had 33 saves as the Blackhawks won their second in a row. They ended a nine-game losing skid with a 4-2 win at the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Derick Brassard scored for Columbus, which has lost all five meetings with Chicago this season.
