Avs come from behind to win thriller

DENVER (AP) - Tomas Fleischmann and Matt Duchene scored one minute apart late in the third period to help the Colorado Avalanche rally for a 7-5 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night.

Colorado trailed 5-4 with 2:24 remaining, but Fleischmann tied it by beating screened goalie Corey Crawford. Duchene added the game winner 60 seconds later, scoring for the second time in the game.

Ryan O'Reilly added an insurance goal in the final seconds, with Crawford on the bench, as the Avalanche won their third straight game.

Brandon Yip, Paul Stastny and Cody McLeod also had goals for the Avalanche, the NHL's second-highest scoring team.
