CHICAGO (AP) - Patrick Sharp scored two goals and Marty Turco made 26 saves to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday night for their fourth straight win.
Turco lost a bid for his second shutout this season with 2:26 left in the third period when Derick Brassard scored on a screened power-play goal.
But Turco won for the first time since since Nov. 17 when he made 18 saves in a 5-0 victory at Edmonton. He started on Sunday when rookie Corey Crawford, who started Chicago's previous four games and 10 of its last 12, didn't dress due to an undisclosed illness.
Tomas Kopecky and Dave Bolland also scored for Chicago, which has allowed just five goals during its winning streak.
