Ryan Smyth, Taylor Hall and Andy Sutton scored in the second period and the Edmonton Oilers bounced back from Daniel Carcillo's nasty hit during a chippy 4-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night.

Jordan Eberle added two assists for the Oilers, including a perfect backhand pass to Sutton for the tiebreaking score.

Ben Eager added an insurance goal in the third period as Edmonton snapped a three-game slide.

Jonathan Toews, Andrew Brunette and Jimmy Hayes scored for Chicago, which had won three of four and 10 of 13.

The Blackhawks were looking to avenge a 9-2 loss at Edmonton in their previous meeting Nov. 19, but were hurt by Carcillo's costly penalty in the second that gave the Oilers a 5-minute power play.
