Nov. 10, 2013 at 10:55 PM

CHICAGO, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Chicago's Marcus Kruger and Duncan Keith each scored a key third-period goal Sunday, enabling the Chicago Blackhawks to hold off Edmonton 5-4.

Kruger was parked in front of the net when he converted a pass from Ben Smith to break a 3-3 tie with 8:16 left in the period.

Less than 2 minutes later, the Blackhawks went on a power play and Keith launched long wrist shot from the left point that eluded Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk for what turned out to be the winning goal.

Brandon Saad notched a goal and an assist for Chicago, which collected a sixth win in seven games.

Bryan Bickell and Andrew Shaw also scored and Corey Crawford stopped 19-of-23 shots.

Jordan Eberle scored with 1:28 remaining to bring the Oilers within a goal, but they could get no closer and fell to 4-13-2 on the season. He also added two assists.

David Perron logged a goal and an assist while Nail Yakupov and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins each scored for Edmonton.

Dubnyk ended with 31 saves.
