Oilers score 4 in first, barely hold off Hawks
CHICAGO – Sam Gagner scored two of Edmonton's four goals in the first period and the Oilers beat the Blackhawks, 6-5, on Sunday night, sending them to their second consecutive loss after their record-breaking start.
Ryan Whitney and Taylor Hall each had a goal and an assist for Edmonton, which snapped a five-game losing streak. Captain Shawn Horcoff also scored as the Oilers went 3 for 4 on the power play.
The Hawks set an NHL record by recording at least one point in the first 24 games of the season. The streak ended with a 6-2 loss at Colorado on Friday night, and coach Joel Quenneville said he was looking forward to seeing how his team responded.
