CHICAGO (AP) - Jonathan Toews and Steve Montador each scored twice to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers 6-3 on Sunday night for their third straight victory.

Duncan Keith had a goal and assist for Chicago (11-4-3), which handed Edmonton its third consecutive loss. Daniel Carcillo capped the scoring with an empty-net goal.

Ryan Smyth, Jordan Eberle and Shawn Horcoff scored for the Oilers (9-6-2).

Montador, a defenseman playing his 10th NHL season, had his first two-goal game. He scored one of his goals playing in a forward spot - and parked in the slot - on a power play.

Edmonton's Nikolai Khabibulin surrendered a season-high five goals on 34 shots and lost his second straight game in regulation after starting the season 7-0-2.

Khabibulin, who entered the game with an NHL-leading 1.18 goals-against average and .957 save percentage, has allowed eight goals in the consecutive losses after permitting just nine in his first nine games.

Chicago's Corey Crawford made 20 saves.

FLYERS 3, PANTHERS 2

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Danny Briere, Braydon Coburn and Matt Read scored and Ilya Bryzgalov made 31 saves in Philadelphia's victory over Florida.

Bryzgalov won for the fourth time in five starts.

Evgeny Dadonov and Tomas Fleischmann scored for Florida and Jose Theodore stopped 32 shots. The Panthers were held without a point for the first time in seven games.

Read scored on a penalty shot to give the Flyers a 3-1 lead. Read was awarded the shot after he was tripped by Jason Garrison. Read's shot trickled through Theodore's pads at 4:14 of the third.
