Second-period wrap: Oilers 3, Hawks 2

By Jesse Rogers

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks trail the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 after two periods at the United Center.

The Oilers took control thanks to two power-play goals scored after Dan Carcillo was kicked out of the game for boarding defenseman Tom Gilbert while the Oilers were given a five minute power play on the infraction.

The Hawks responded, tying the game briefly on a Andrew Brunette tip of a Nikals Hjalmarsson score but Edmonton took the lead back with a late tally by Andy Sutton.

Carcillo and Gilbert both limped off the ice with knee injuries. Jonathan Toews has the Hawks other score off a feed by Carcillo who faces supplemental discipline for his hit.
