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.

Ales Hemsky, Jarret Stoll and Marty Reasoner scored for the Oilers.

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.
