Blackhawks 3, Oilers 2 (OT): Marian Hossa scored 1:44 into overtime as host Chicago rallied to extend its record start to the season.

Patrick Sharp gained the zone and drove to the net before being stopped by Nikolai Khabibulin. Sharp and Hossa each took whacks at the rebound, and the latter was successful on his second chance.

Petry opened the scoring at 4:28 of the first period, putting a rebound over a prone Emery after Lennart Petrell pounced on a turnover by Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith and skated in alone. Kane tied the contest 62 seconds later during the same power play, taking the puck along the left-wing boards and skating into the slot before putting a backhand shot by Khabibulin.

Yakupov gave Edmonton a 2-1 lead in the second period with his sixth of the season when he one-timed a cross-slot pass from Sam Gagner past Emery. Stalberg jammed in a loose puck in the crease 2:24 into the third to keep Chicago's streak alive.
