EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Rene Bourque had quite a homecoming party Saturday night.
The Edmonton native scored twice and backup goalie Craig Anderson made 33 saves to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Oilers 4-3 for a two-game Alberta sweep.
``It's a great feeling to come back and play in front of my family and friends,'' Bourque said. ``It's a dream come true. Any time you play in Canada the atmosphere is so much better.''
Mark Bell and Martin Lapointe also scored for Chicago, which ended Calgary's eight-game winning streak Friday night with a 5-2 victory. The Blackhawks, who have won five of six, have three games left on their five-game trip
``It's been a while since the Blackhawks have strung together some wins,'' Chicago captain Adrian Aucoin said. ``This road trip is a huge one for us.''
Bell has six goals in his last five games.
Bourque scored his second goal of the game 4:05 into the third period, beating Jussi Markkanen with a slap shot to give Chicago a 4-1 lead.
``His game has come so far,'' Blackhawks coach Trent Yawney said. ``When he is around the net he doesn't miss very often.''
Oilers coach replaced Markkanen with Mike Morrison after the goal.
Stoll scored a power-play goal at 5:01 and Reasoner completed the scoring with another power-play goal with 7:04 remaining.
Notes: Edmonton outshot Chicago 11-4 in the third period. ... Chicago will play in Vancouver on Tuesday night. ... The Oilers traded Russian defenseman Alexei Semenov to Florida on Saturday for a conditional 2006 draft pick. The 24-year-old Semenov, 6-foot-6 and 235 pounds, had a goal and an assist in 11 games for the Oilers this season. He has four goals and 14 assists in 103 career NHL games, all with Edmonton.
