Tyson Barrie scores 2nd goal of game in overtime to give Avalanche 3-2 win over Blackhawks

CHICAGO - Tyson Barrie scored his second goal of the game on a power play at 4:09 of overtime, and the Colorado Avalanche defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Tuesday night.

With Jonathan Toews off for hooking, Barrie beat Corey Crawford with a one-timer from the left circle after taking a cross-ice pass from Matt Duchene to give Colorado its second straight win. The Avalanche improved to 6-1-1 in their last eight games despite being outshot 48-26.

Barrie and Ryan O'Reilly scored 1:02 apart late in the first period.

Chicago's Andrew Shaw scored on a rebound at 7:27 of the third to tie it. Shaw also assisted on Johnny Oduya's goal in the second.

Semyon Varlamov made 46 saves for Colorado and improved to 9-0-5 in his last 15 games, including 14 starts — the longest streak of his career without a regulation loss. His last defeat in regulation was at Phoenix on Dec. 10, when Colorado lost 3-1.

Crawford finished with 23 saves. The Blackhawks have dropped their last seven games that have gone past regulation, dating to Nov. 29.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
