Recap: Chicago vs. Colorado

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Tyson Barrie scored two goals, including the game-winner in overtime to lift the Colorado Avalanche to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center.

Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews went off for hooking with 1:26 left in the extra session. The Avalanche struck on the subsequent power play as Matt Duchene whipped a backhand pass that Barrie one-timed home from the left circle with 50.7 seconds remaining.

"We were fortunate to get a power play there and it was nice to capitalize on that and get the two points," Barrie said.

Semyon Varlamov stole the two points for undermanned Colorado with a sublime 46-save performance.

The Avalanche, who improved to 6-1-1 in their last eight games, were already playing without forward Paul Stastny (leg) and defenseman Cory Sarich (back) when defenseman Erik Johnson left Tuesday's game with a back injury, too.

Corey Crawford stopped 23 shots for Chicago, which has only one win in its last five games (1-1-3).

"Our record in overtime is rather one-sided against us," said Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville.

Chicago fell to 0-5 in overtime this season.

Barrie's first goal opened the scoring at 14:58 of the first period and Ryan O'Reilly, following good puck movement, made it 2-0 on a power play 62 seconds later.

Johnny Oduya was credited with a goal on a deflection, putting Chicago on the board 8:12 into the second period. The Blackhawks tied things up when Andrew Shaw knocked down a rebound, turned around in the slot and beat Varlamov at 7:27 of the third period.

Game Notes

In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
