Barrie scores tiebreaking goal in 3rd as Colorado Avalanche top Chicago Blackhawks 4-2

CHICAGO - Tyson Barrie scored a tiebreaking power-play goal with 7:10 left in the third period, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 on Tuesday night for their third straight win.

The Avalanche reached the 40-victory mark faster than any team in franchise history. More importantly, they moved within one point of Chicago for second in the Central Division.

Barrie got open in the left circle and one-timed Erik Johnson's perfect cross-ice feed high past Corey Crawford on the glove side. It was Barrie's second game-winner against Chicago this season, following an overtime goal against the Blackhawks on Jan. 14.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
