An incredible night for Gagner as he scored four of Edmonton's goals and assisted on the other four for the first eight-point game in the NHL in more than 23 years as the Oilers routed the Blackhawks 8-4 on Thursday night.

Gagner is the 11th player in NHL history to record eight points in a game -- a list that includes two Oilers, Gretzky (twice) and Paul Coffey -- but the first since Pittsburgh's Mario Lemieux did it on Dec. 31, 1988. Gagner joins Lemieux, who also had two eight-point performances, as the only players to score eight points with one on each of his team's goals.

I'm sure that you just forgot to mention that one of the other players who had an 8 pt game (4 g, 4 a) was our very own Tom Bladon.
