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.

It's time we got a break. People that have watched us, I'm sure they said, 'Finally, some things are going our way.' We'll take the breaks when they go our way.
