CHICAGO, Ill. (AP) – Andrew Shaw and Jonathan Toews had two goals apiece, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Blue Jackets 6-1 on Thursday night.
Ryan Johansen scored his 25th goal for the Blue Jackets, who had won three in a row. Sergei Bobrovsky made 14 stops before he was pulled during the Blackhawks’ three-goal second period.
Brandon Bollig and Bryan Bickell also scored as Chicago bounced back from a 4-2 home loss to Colorado on Tuesday night. Corey Crawford made 22 saves for his 10th consecutive victory against Columbus.
The Stanley Cup champions had managed just eight goals while dropping three of four games, and five of those goals came against Pittsburgh at Soldier Field on Saturday, prompting coach Joel Quenneville to shuffle his lines.
