Barrie's goal lifts Avalanche in overtime 1-0
COLORADO 1, NASHVILLE 0 (OT)

DENVER (AP) -- Semyon Varlamov kept the Colorado Avalanche in the
game, and Tyson Barrie eventually got him the only goal he
needed to get the win.



Varlamov stopped 34 shots, Barrie scored 50 seconds into
overtime and the Avalanche beat the Nashville Predators 1-0 on
Saturday.



Pekka Rinne had 23 saves for Nashville, which has lost two
straight but gained a point heading to Chicago on Monday.



"Any point on the road is a good point," coach Barry Trotz said.
"They're playing pretty well, they've got a lot of offense and
they're at home. Obviously you want two points but we'll take
one."



The Predators are fighting to make the playoffs with a month
left in the season. They came into Saturday two points behind
St. Louis for the eighth and final postseason spot in the
Western Conference with 14 games remaining. They got one point
despite being shut out for the sixth time this season and
wasting a strong outing by Rinne.



"We had chances, and they were good chances," defenseman Shea
Weber said. "We've got to score goals if we want to win."



They failed to do anything against Varlamov, who recorded his
third shutout of the season and No. 11 for his career. He came
up big throughout the game to give Colorado a chance to win in
overtime.



"Varly has been unbelievable," Avalanche center Matt Duchene
said. "He's been so consistent for us. It was one of those games
that felt like the first goal would win it."



They got the one goal early in the extra period. Barrie scored
when he came down the right side and sent Greg Zanon's rebound
past Rinne. It was Barrie's second goal of the season and ended
a four-game skid for the Avalanche.



P.A. Parenteau had his team-leading 21st assist on the play.



"I thought Z might one-time that, and if Rinne made the save it
might pop out to me," Barrie said. "I was fortunate to get the
bounce and it was pretty much an empty net. I made it a little
harder than it was and put it in off his pad."



It was just the third goal by a Colorado defenseman this season,
two of them from Barrie.



"Obviously we've been struggling to score goals from the back
end, myself included, but it was definitely nice to get that
one," Barrie said. "Any time we can get an OT winner it feels
pretty good."



The Avalanche have had few reasons to celebrate of late.
Colorado was 10-10-4 after beating San Jose on March 10, but has
gone 2-8-0 since.



The Avalanche were in the hunt for a playoff berth three weeks
ago, but are now on track for a high draft pick for the fourth
time in the past five years.



"It's been a tough stretch here this last little while, but not
too many times did we talk about or have complaints about effort
or work," Colorado coach Joe Sacco said. "This afternoon we got
rewarded."



Nashville outshot Colorado 27-12 in the first 40 minutes, in
part due to six power-play opportunities, one of which was a
double minor for high sticking.



Nashville wasn't able to take advantage even with a two-man
advantage for 33 seconds. Varlamov was sharp and kept the game
scoreless.



"We had a lot of chances on the power play and we weren't able
to convert," Trotz said. "It was Varlamov. Most nights one of
those will go in."



NOTES: The Avalanche had just one power-play opportunity, which
lasted 14 seconds. ... Nashville center Mike Fisher was
scratched due to an upper-body injury suffered in Thursday's
loss to Phoenix. He is considered day to day. ... Avalanche C
Paul Stastny (foot) missed his third straight game. He is
expected to be out a total of 10 days. ... Colorado forward
David Jones was scratched. He's day to day with a knee injury.
It was his third game missed with the injury and fourth straight
game he has not dressed.
