Ryan O’Reilly and Max Talbot scored for the Avalanche, who had won two consecutive games. ”I should have had a lot more,” O’Reilly said. ”The goal was definitely nice, but I still need to keep working harder and do a lot more things better.” Colorado tied it 2-all on O’Reilly’s third goal of the season at 3:36 of the third. Chicago stepped up the pressure but Pickard kept it a tie game until Bickell’s go-ahead goal at 14:43 on a pass from Kane. ”Duncan (Keith) threw kind of a half-decent pass to Kane and he picked it up,” Bickell said. ”I don’t know how he was handling it when it was bouncing, but he made a play and got the puck to the net.” Until then it appeared Pickard might steal a win for Colorado. He kept the Blackhawks off the board in the first period and made four of his 13 saves in the first 20 minutes on Marian Hossa, who had several chances.
