Blackhawks Vs. Oilers Score Update: Blackhawks Lead 5-3 After 2 Periods

The Edmonton Oilers responded to a rough first period with a couple of goals in the second period, but the Blackhawks added a pair of goals as well, and the margin remains two goals.

Jonathan Toews extended the Blackhawks lead to three with the first goal of the period, his second of the game. Jordan Eberle answered for Edmonton, and that goal was followed by a score by Duncan Keith. Edmonton once again pulled to within two on a power play goal with less than a minute remaining in the period.

After two periods, Chicago has a 21-16 edge in shots on goal. Brent Seabrook suffered a lower body injury and will not return to Sunday night's game, according to the Blackhawks' Twitter feed.
