Blue Jackets Vs. Blackhawks Final Score: As They've Done All Season, Columbus Loses Big To Chicago, 5-1

Losing is nothing new to the Columbus Blue Jackets, but they don't lose quite as bad to other teams as they did to the Chicago Blackhawks this season. After a 5-1 loss on Tuesday night, the Blue Jackets' goal differential this season in six games against the Blackhawks wound up being minus-21, 31-10. That's really bad.

The Blackhawks have won four in a row now and eight of their last eleven. Duncan Keith had four points in Tuesday night's win, all coming on assists. Patrick Sharp scored twice on six shots and Andrew Shaw added a goal, as well.

Rick Nash scored the lone goal for the Blue Jackets in the third period when it was already 5-0; it was his 25th of the season.

Columbus is back on the ice again on Friday vs. the Carolina Hurricanes.
