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

Varlamov hasn't lost in regulation in his last 14 starts (9-0-5) ... Brandon Saad assisted on both Chicago goals ... The Blackhawks were 0-for-5 on the power play.
