COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Jonathan Toews had two goals and an assist, and the Chicago Blackhawks’ struggling power play scored twice in a 6-3 victory over the stumbling Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.
The Blackhawks broke a three-game losing streak with their highest-scoring game of the season.
Andrew Brunette, Steve Montador, Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa also had goals for Chicago, which lost 3-0 at St. Louis on Tuesday. Montador added an assist, and Nick Leddy and Brent Seabrook both had two assists. Corey Crawford made 27 saves.
The Blue Jackets fell to 2-12-1, by far the worst record in the NHL. They have lost three in a row and been outscored 19-6.
