Avalanche 1, Predators 0, OT

Associated Press  |  Last updated March 30, 2013
Tyson Barrie scored at 50 seconds of overtime and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Nashville Predators 1-0 on Saturday. Semyon Varlamov stopped 34 shots for his third shutout of the season and the 11th of his career. Pekka Rinne had 23 saves for Nashville, which has lost two straight. Barrie scored when he came down the right side and knocked in 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. 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. The Predators carried the play for most of the first two periods. They 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. Colorado was already short-handed coming into the game and lost veteran forward Milan Hejduk to a shoulder injury in the first period. Notes: 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.
