Recap: Colorado vs. Chicago

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Bryan Bickell broke a tie with 5:17 remaining in the third period as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 on Wednesday.

Jonathan Toews and Andrew Shaw scored power-play goals in the second period for the Blackhawks, who improved to 3-1-0 on their six-game road trip. Patrick Kane collected three assists, while Corey Crawford made 27 saves for the win.

Ryan O'Reilly and Maxime Talbot had the goals for Colorado, which was seeking a third straight win. Calvin Pickard stopped 42 shots in his second career NHL start.

"It was a great effort tonight, but it would have been nice if we had more power plays," said Avalanche forward Alex Tanguay, who returned to the lineup after missing two games with a facial fracture. "When we were 5-on-5, we played them even."

Chicago finished 2-for-6 on the power play, while Colorado was 0-for-2 with the man advantage.

O'Reilly roofed a backhander off a scramble in front of Crawford, tying the game at 2-2 at 3:36 of the third.

Bickell put the Blackhawks back on top when he swept the puck in from down low after Kane skated around defenseman Nick Holden.

"I don't know how (Kane) handled (the puck) while it was bouncing, but a great pass over to me," Bickell said.

After a scoreless opening period, Talbot staked the Avalanche to a 1-0 lead at 7:35 of the middle stanza. He beat Blackhawks players to the crease and buried Marc-Andre Cliche's pass from behind the net.

Chicago tied it a little over four minutes later. Brent Seabrook's point shot trickled past Pickard and Toews poked in the loose puck at 11:50.

Shaw, who sat out the Blackhawks' three previous games with an upper-body injury, scored on a one-timer from the left circle off a feed from Kane at 14:21 of the second.

Game Notes

Colorado allowed only two goals on 33 power-play opportunities in its first 10 home games this season ... Seabrook picked up his 300th career point ... The Avalanche were 4-1-0 against the Blackhawks last season.
