|Gagner has 4 Goals, 4 Assists in Oilers' Win
|EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Sam Gagner had four goals and four assists in the NHL's first eight-point game in 23 years, and the Edmonton Oilers beat the Chicago Blackhawks 8-4 on Thursday night.
Gagner fell two points shy of matching the mark of 10, set by Toronto's Darryl Sittler on Feb. 7, 1976, but he tied the club record of eight that is held by Wayne Gretzky and defenseman Paul Coffey.
The 22-year-old Gagner, who had only five goals this season before Thursday, was chosen as all three stars of the game.
