NHL: Preseason-Chicago Blackhawks at Columbus Blue Jackets Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

Alexandre Fortin scored 53 seconds into the game, but it was all Columbus Blue Jackets after that with four unanswered goals in a 4-1 preseason victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday at Nationwide Arena.

Cam Ward made 13 saves on 15 shots in 30 minutes, 10 seconds in his Blackhawks debut. Ward was replaced by Collin Delia, who made 14 saves.

Chicago will practice today at MB Ice Arena before visiting the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday.
