Blackhawks Hockey

Highlights: Avalanche bury Blackhawks 3-2 in overtime

By Chris Kuc

About seven hours before puck drop at the United Center, Matt Duchene sat in the Avalanche dressing room and spoke of the Blackhawks as being an example of how to play in the NHL.

“A great kind of big brother team for us to look at is the Chicago Blackhawks,” Duchene said. “They play a great brand of hockey. They take care of their own end but when it’s time to go on offense they go and make teams panic.”

Little brother didn’t panic in the face of a Hawks shot onslaught Tuesday night as Tyson Barrie scored on a one-timer from the left circle with 50.7 seconds left in overtime to give the Avalanche a 3-2 victory before a crowd of 21,412.
