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

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
