Derek Roy had a goal and two assists to lift the Edmonton Oilers to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Benoit Pouliot, Jeff Petry, Nail Yakupov and Taylor Hall also scored for the Oilers, who are 3-1-2 under interim coach Todd Nelson since he took over sole coaching responsibilities when general manager Craig MacTavish moved back upstairs from the bench.

The Oilers had lost 20 of their previous 21 games before the recent surge.

Brandon Saad had a pair of goals for the Blackhawks, who have lost two of their last three.
