Oilers Beat Blackhawks to End 6 Game Slide
CHICAGO (AP) -- Sam Gagner, Ales Hemsky and Jordan Hendry scored in a 1:09 span late in the first period, Gagner added an empty netter in the third and the Edmonton Oilers snapped a six game losing streak with a 7-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Rookie Taylor Hall had a goal and an assist, and Andrew Cogliano and Ryan Jones also scored for Edmonton, which was 0-4-2 after winning its first two games of the season. The Oilers improved to 3-23-3 in their last 29 road games dating to mid-December of last season.
