Sharp has 2 Goals, Blackahwks Rout Jackets, 5-1
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Patrick Sharp scored two goals, Duncan Keith had four assists and Corey Crawford made 24 saves as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-1 on Tuesday night to sweep the season series.

The Blackhawks, who started the night in sixth place in the West playoff race, outscored the Blue Jackets 31-10 in the six games. They won every game by at least three goals over Columbus, which has far and away the worst record in the NHL.

Andrew Shaw and Marian Hossa each had a goal and an assist and Brent Seabrook also scored for Chicago, which has won four in a row.

Crawford maintained a shutout until Rick Nash tipped in a shot by Jack Johnson to get the Blue Jackets on the board with 7:29 left.
