Blue Jackets Vs. Blackhawks Final Score: Chicago Wins 5-2 To End Losing Streak

The Chicago Blackhawks pulled off a 5-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night to end a four-game losing streak and get the team back on track. A game against the struggling Blue Jackets came at a good time, as there's nothing like a home game against one of the worst teams in the league to find your mojo. Columbus has now won twice in its past 12 games and no team in the NHL has a worse record.

After taking a 2-1 lead into the final period, Chicago finally managed to pull away. A few minutes into the period, Viktor Stalberg scored his second goal of the game to extend the lead to 3-1. Ben Smith would also get on the board for Chicago before Columbus responded with a goal from Antione Vermette to cut the lead to 4-2. Stalberg would ultimately complete the hat trick by scoring an empty net goal in the final minutes to put things away.
