|Oilers Beat Blackahwks 4-3 to End 3-game Slide
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Ryan Smyth, Taylor Hall and Andy Sutton scored in the second period and the Edmonton Oilers bounced back from Daniel Carcillo's nasty hit during a chippy 4-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night.
Jordan Eberle added two assists for the Oilers, including a perfect backhand pass to Sutton for the tiebreaking score. Ben Eager added an insurance goal in the third period as Edmonton snapped a three-game slide.
Jonathan Toews, Andrew Brunette and Jimmy Hayes scored for Chicago, which had won three of four and 10 of 13. The Blackhawks were looking to avenge a 9-2 loss at Edmonton in their previous meeting Nov. 19, but were hurt by Carcillo's costly penalty in the second.
