Feb. 18, 2012 at 8:13 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp each notched a goal and two assists Saturday in the Chicago Blackhawks' 6-1 rout of Columbus.

Toews and Viktor Stallberg scored within 4 1/2 minutes of each other in the first period to erase a 1-0 deficit and the Blackhawks cruised from there to a victory, logging a second straight win for the first time in nearly a month.

Patrick Kane added a goal and an assist while Marcus Kruger and Sami Lepisto also tallied for Chicago, which wrapped up a nine-game road trip with a victory.

Corey Crawford earned the win, stopping 33-of-34 shots.

Steve Mason started in net for Columbus but was yanked in the second period after surrendering four goals on 20 shots.

Allen York entered and stopped 6-of-8 shots the rest of the way.

Derick Brassard's unassisted tally 5:13 into the first period was the Blue Jackets' only tally.
