EDMONTON - Marian Hossa took a long pass from Brent Seabrook and scored 1:08 into overtime on Wednesday as the Chicago Blackhawks extended their winning streak to three games with a 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.

Duncan Keith, Artemi Panarin and Andrew Shaw also scored for the Blackhawks (11-7-1), who were playing the first of a six-game road trip.

Jordan Eberle, Benoit Pouliot and Leon Draisaitl found the back of the net for the Oilers (6-12-1), who have lost three in a row and are once again sitting last in the NHL standings.

Edmonton had 11 shots on Blackhawks starter Corey Crawford in the first period, but had its best chance early in the second when defenceman Darnell Nurse hit a post.

Keith opened the scoring with a power-play goal in the second ??? redirecting a Patrick Kane feed past Oilers goalie Anders Nilsson.

Chicago made it 2-0 with five minutes left in the second as a bouncing puck ended up on the stick of an undefended Panarin, who scored his seventh of the season.

Edmonton clawed back shortly after with Brandon Davidson springing Eberle on a breakaway and he beat Crawford high to the glove side.

Nurse danced through traffic to send it to Pouliot in front for the goal as the Oilers tied the game four minutes into the third.

Chicago regained the lead with eight minutes left as Shaw fanned on his initial shot but was able to convert his second whack at it to make it 3-2.

Edmonton tied it up once again with 2:46 remaining as Draisaitl was able to score from a tough angle in tight to send the game to overtime. It was his sixth goal and 14th point in nine games this season.

Both teams return to action on Friday as the Blackhawks play in Calgary and the Oilers host the New Jersey Devils.

Notes: Chicago forward Teuvo Teravainen left the game with an upper body injury. ??? Kane and Panarin came into the game having combined for 46 points this season for the Blackhawks, which accounted for more than 37 per cent of team scoring. ??? Remaining out for the Oilers were Connor McDavid (collarbone), Justin Schultz (back), Rob Klinkhammer (leg) and Luke Gazdic (illness).
