The score was tied at 3-3 heading into the final period, when the Oilers poured it on to win for the third time in four outings. Chicago has lost four in a row.
Gagner scored on a slap shot 1:54 into the third to give the Oilers a 4-3 lead and Cam Barker tallied for Edmonton 1:49 later. After Dave Bolland brought Chicago back within one, Gagner produced his third and fourth goals of the game to give him nine for the season.
