Varlamov stops 36 shots, Stastny has 2 points as Avalanche beat Blackhawks 5-1

DENVER - Semyon Varlamov stopped 36 shots, Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-1 on Tuesday night.

Gabriel Landeskog and John Mitchell also scored during Colorado's three-goal first period. P.A. Parenteau and Cody McLeod added goals in the second and third for Colorado, which snapped a three-game skid.

Brandon Saad scored for the Blackhawks, who failed to get at least two goals for the first time this season. Colorado ended Chicago's NHL-record streak of 24 consecutive games with at least a point to start a season in a 6-2 win last March.

Antti Raanta made 14 saves in his NHL debut for the Blackhawks. He played the final 46:23 in relief of Corey Crawford, who allowed three goals on seven shots.
