NHL: Hawks fall 6-5 to Oilers, open second half 0-2-0

CHICAGO – The second half of the season hasn’t quite gone the way the first did for the Blackhawks.

After having their 24-game streak to start the season without a regulation loss snapped two nights earlier, the Hawks fell for the second consecutive game as they came out on the short end of a wild contest, 6-5 to the Oilers on Sunday night at the United Center.

The Hawks dropped to 21-2-3 on the season as goaltender Ray Emery didn’t make it out of the first period as the speedy Oilers came out on top.

Sam Gagner had two goals, Ryan Whitney and Taylor Hall each had a goal and an assist and Shawn Horcoff and Mike Brown also scored. Devan Dubynk didn’t finish the game in goal for the Oilers after departing with an injury but earned the win.

Patrick Kane had two goals and an assist, Marian Hossa had a goal and an assist, and Sheldon Broobank and Brent Seabrook added scores.

The Oilers struck early and often for a four-goal lead. Gagner followed scores by Brown and Whitney. After Whitney’s goal made it 3-0, Hawks coach Joel Quenneville had seen enough of Emery.
