Hall, Eberle, Nugent-Hopkins Put Oilers Past Hawks
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Taylor Hall had a hat trick, Jordan Eberle had a goal and three assists, and rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins set up five goals for the Edmonton Oilers, who broke a four-game skid in a big way with a 9-2 rout of the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Ales Hemsky, Ryan Jones, Ryan Smyth, Tom Gilbert and Shawn Horcoff also scored for the Oilers (10-7-2), and Nikolai Khabibulin moved into a 19th-place tie with Sean Burke on the NHL career wins list.

Patrick Sharp and Dave Bolland had goals for the Blackhawks (12-6-3), who have lost two in a row following a four-game winning streak.
