Edmonton uses 4-goal first to beat Blackhawks 6-5
EDMONTON 6, CHICAGO 5

CHICAGO (AP) -- All the streaks are over.



The Chicago Blackhawks have lost in regulation at home and on
the road, in consecutive games.



Now they get a chance to rest.



Patrick Kane had two goals and an assist as the Blackhawks
rallied after a terrible start, but Yann Davis made 10 saves in
the third period to help the Edmonton Oilers hold on for a 6-5
victory on Sunday night.



"Definitely disappointed with the way we began the game,"
Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "We've seen that movie
before from them. I like the response though after that."



Sam Gagner scored two of the Oilers' four goals in the first
period, helping Edmonton come up with a sorely needed victory.



The Oilers had dropped five in a row and six of seven on their
franchise-record, nine-game road trip. They were shut out in
each of the previous two games.



"It's just a good feeling to come out with a win," Gagner said.
"We wanted to respond after the last couple of games and we did
a good job of that in the first. We got away from it a bit in
the last two periods, but we were able to hang on to the win and
that's the important thing."



Ryan Whitney and Taylor Hall each had a goal and an assist for
Edmonton, which is at Colorado on Tuesday before returning home.
Captain Shawn Horcoff also scored as the Oilers went 3 for 4 on
the power play.



"The explosion we had in the first period, you could see they
were a little back on their heels coming off their loss in
Colorado," Oilers coach Ralph Krueger said. "They were slightly
flat and we really took the opportunity. I thought all of our
goals tonight, all six, were excellent goals."



Chicago set an NHL record by recording at least one point in the
first 24 games of the season. The streak ended with a 6-2 loss
at the Avalanche on Friday night, and the Blackhawks needed an
entire period to find their footing in their seventh game in the
past 11 days.



Now they're off until they open a four-game road trip Thursday
at Columbus.



"We've got to take advantage, take care of our bodies and get
ready for Thursday," captain Jonathan Toews said. "It'll be
nice."



Back at home after their first regulation loss, the Blackhawks
opened with their worst period of the season before putting
together a spirited rally.



Kane, Marian Hossa, Sheldon Brookbank and Brent Seabrook scored
during the second, and Kane added his team-best 14th of the
season to get Chicago within one with 13 minutes left.



The Blackhawks kept up the pressure for the last part of the
game, but couldn't get the tying goal. Davis, who came in after
Devan Dubnyk was hurt in the second period, finished with 21
saves.



"I think in the room we knew we were going to give it a play,
especially after the first period," Kane said. "It was an
exciting end. When you're down 4-0 and can come back to make it
6-5 you gotta have a little bit of a good feeling about that,
just not a great start."



Dubnyk made a nice pad save on Hossa before the posts were
dislodged when the right winger and Edmonton center Teemu
Hartikainen converged on the goal. Hartikainen practically
skated over the prone Dubnyk, who was down for several minutes
before he was escorted from the ice.



A trainer appeared to be examining Dubnyk's head and neck.



"We don't see any signs of head injury," Krueger said. "We
didn't see anything but a situation where there was a lot of
risk in putting him back in there. With that kind of impact, we
need some time overnight to fully assess him in the morning."



The Blackhawks looked slow and listless on defense as Edmonton
skated free all over the ice in the first. Ray Emery was pulled
midway through the period, marking the second straight time that
Quenneville yanked his starting goaltender from the game.



Mike Brown and Gagner scored 36 seconds apart to make it 2-0
just three minutes into the game. Whitney then got open along
the left side of the goal and converted a cross-ice pass from
Hall to make it 3-0 at 9:19, chasing Emery from the game.



Corey Crawford came in and shut out the Oilers for three minutes
before a streaking Gagner went to his backhand for a power-play
goal with 7:38 left in the period.



"We took a lot of pride before the game in how we were going to
come out and play," Hall said. "And the things that we were
going to do and the intensity that we were going to play with
and we showed a lot of those things."



NOTES: It was Brown's first goal since Feb. 29, 2012, for
Toronto at Chicago ... Edmonton scored 24 goals while taking
three of four against Chicago last season.
