   EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Ryan Smyth had a pair of goals as the Edmonton Oilers won their fifth in a row, 4-2 over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday night.
   Shawn Horcoff and Jordan Eberle also scored for the Oilers, who improved to 6-1-1 at home and moved back into first place in the Western Conference with the win.
   Davis Backes and Alex Pietrangelo responded for the Blues, who have lost two in a row on the heels of a three-game winning streak.
   The Oilers (7-2-2) struck first 5:30 in as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins made a perfect pass to a streaking Horcoff, who shoveled a power-play goal past Blues starter Jaroslav Halak.
