2/20/16: After some nifty passing, Tyson Barrie gets the puck on the doorstep and hammers it home to give the Avalanche their first lead
EDMONTON - Defenseman Tyson Barrie scored two goals to lift the Colorado Avalanche to a 3-2 win against the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place on Saturday.
Barrie scored the go-ahead goal early in the second period and the game-winner in the third in Colorado's second consecutive victory and fourth in five games. John Mitchell also scored for the Avalanche (31-26-4) and backup goaltender Calvin Pickard made 25 saves for his fourth win of the season. The victory moved Colorado ahead of the Nashville Predators into the first wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference.
