Oilers Snap Streak Against Hawks

(WSCR) – Marian Hossa wasn’t able to help the Blackhawks Friday night due to his injury and Marty Turco was replaced early as he had a disappointing performance.

CHICAGO (AP) Sam Gagne, Ales Hemsky and Jordan Hendry scored in a 1:09 span late in the first period, Gagne also scored 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.

Patrick Sharp scored a power-play goal and added two assists for the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks in their third loss in four games. Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Jake Dowell also scored for mistake-plagued Chicago, and Duncan Keith had three assists.
