Avalanche coach Patrick Roy will add American Hockey League call-ups Tyson Barrie and Brad Malone to a much maligned lineup as Colorado tries to snap a three-game losing streak. The Avs face the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday at the Pepsi Center. Following a day off, Roy put his 14-5 team through practice Monday, and afterward said Barrie will temporarily replace defenseman Cory Sarich and Malone will play on the fourth line as the team compensates for the loss of center and leading scorer Matt Duchene. Rookie Nathan MacKinnon is scheduled to replace Duchene at center, playing between left wing Gabe Landeskog and previous center/left wing Ryan O'Reilly on the right side. Center Paul Stastny is now between left wing Jamie McGinn and right wing P.A. Parenteau. Barrie, who was recalled from the Lake Erie Monsters on Sunday morning, practiced at the point on the power play, paired with Erik Johnson. Roy said the 35-year-old Sarich, who practiced Monday, requires rest and will be a healthy scratch Tuesday. Malone got word of his promotion Sunday night and arrived at the club's practice facility shortly after Monday's practice. The natural center will play on the fourth line Tuesday with center/right wing Marc-Andre Cliche and Patrick Bordeleau. John Mitchell will center the third line with Cody McLeod and Max Talbot.
