Oilers deal Blackhawks second straight setback
Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Sam Gagner tallied twice on Sunday, as the Edmonton Oilers handed the Chicago Blackhawks their second straight regulation loss with a 6-5 decision at United Center.
Taylor Hall and Ryan Whitney posted a goal and an assist apiece, while Shawn Horcoff and Mike Brown each scored once to help the Oilers put the brakes on a five-game skid.
Devan Dubnyk stopped 11-of-13 shots before suffering an upper-body injury near the midpoint of the second period. Yann Danis replaced Dubnyk and saved 21 shots to earn the victory.
Patrick Kane scored twice and added an assist, while Brent Seabrook, Sheldon Brookbank and Marian Hossa each lit the lamp once for the Blackhawks, who had gone their first 24 games of the season without a regulation loss before falling in Colorado on Friday.
Blackhawks goaltender Ray Emery was lifted after giving up three goals on nine shots in the first frame. Corey Crawford took over between the pipes and stopped 13-of-16 shots in the setback.
