Oilers Slip Past Blackhawks… Again
(WSCR) – About a week ago, the Edmonton Oilers gave the Chicago Blackhawks their worst loss of the season. The Blackhawks led the Oilers 1-0 into the third period when the Oilers scored twice within a 14 second span for the win.
Nikolai Khabibulin made 26 saves for Edmonton, which improved to 2-2-2 on road this season and 4-23-3 in its last 30 road games dating to December 2009.
Both of the Oilers’ road wins this season have been in Chicago against the defending Stanley Cup champions, who dropped to 4-6-0 at home. Edmonton defeated the Blackhawks 7-4 at the United Center on Oct. 29.
Blackhawks star forward Marian Hossa returned after missing five games with a shoulder injury.
