DENVER -- The Colorado Avalanche downplayed their dominance over the defending Stanley Cup champions this season. No sense giving the Chicago Blackhawks any sort of bulletin board material, just in case the two teams meet again in the post-season. Semyon Varlamov stopped 37 shots for his 100th NHL win, helping the Avalanche beat the Blackhawks 3-2 on Wednesday night to take four of five in the season series. "I dont want to talk about sending messages," Varlamov said. "We are focusing on what we are doing and on the playoffs." Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville wasnt reading too much into the Avalanches advantage, either. After all, the Avs only outscored Chicago 17-14. "There are going to be certain teams your record isnt going to be as good as you like," Quenneville said. "It looks like its a landslide against you, but every game has been different. Every game has been close." Thats because these two squads are almost mirror images. Theyre fast, young and have quality goaltending. Chicago has been that way for years. The Avalanche are just coming of age under first-year coach Patrick Roy. He doesnt mind the comparisons to Chicago, but thinks it might be a little premature because of "what theyve been able to accomplish. But we certainly look up to them." Brad Malone scored his first goal of the season, Matt Duchene extended his points to a career-high nine games with a goal and an assist, and Ryan OReilly scored what turned out to be the game-winner on a two-man advantage as the Avalanche jumped over the Blackhawks in the Central Division standings and into second place. "We are happy to be in second place, but thats not our goal," Duchene said. "We want to keep pushing and climb as high as we can." Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad scored for Chicago. Antti Raanta made 26 saves filling in for Corey Crawford. It was the first time Raanta has been in net since Jan. 28. Varlamov became the fourth Russian-born goaltender to record 100 wins, joining Evgeni Nabokov (347), Nikolai Khabibulin (333) and Ilya Bryzgalov (213). This also was Varlamovs 33rd win, second-most in the league behind Pittsburghs Marc-Andre Fleury (34). The Avalanche had a 5-on-3 opportunity for 1:30 midway through the third period following an interference call on Andrew Shaw and a delay of game by Marcus Kruger after he sent the puck into the seats. OReilly capitalized when he grabbed a rebound near the net and knocked it in for a 3-1 advantage. Chicago pulled Raanta with 2:32 remaining and scored seconds later when Saad knocked the puck past Varlamov. The Blackhawks momentarily put Raanta back on the ice, but summoned him to the bench with 1:37 left, leading to a wild finish. Saad sent a backhander just over the net with 25 seconds left and lined a shot into the chest of Varlamov with 4.9 seconds remaining. After that save, the crowd began chanting "Varly! Varly!" "Varly has been playing outstanding for us," Roy said. "He gives us a chance to win every night." Duchene staked Colorado to a 2-0 lead 19 seconds into the second period when he sent a wrist shot past Raanta. The Blackhawks sliced into the lead at 8:23 when Kane skated down the right side with defenceman Jan Hejda hanging all over him. Kane found just enough separation to lift backhanded shot over the shoulder of Varlamov for his 29th goal of the season. Colorado was without forwards P.A. Parenteau (right knee) and Paul Stastny (back). The team called up Paul Carey and Malone from the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League to add depth. Carey made his NHL debut and Malone instantly contributed as he scored late in the opening period. Cruising along the left boards, Malone sent a low liner at Raanta that went right through his legs. "It was a good shot. It was a surprising shot," Raanta said. "Thats how hockey treats you. You have to let those goals go and just keep going and try to make more saves." NOTES: Blackhawks C Jonathan Toews said of Colorados recent success against his team: "We just need to stop playing into their hands." ... Varlamov had an assist on Malones goal, his third of the season. ... Varlamov was 4-0 in five games (four starts) against Chicago, with a 1.59 goals-against average. ... Varlamov was given the puck to commemorate his 100th win. "It was important that I save the puck," he said. Jori Lehtera Jersey .

While both analysts go in different directions with their selections (as they often do on their show), there is consensus at the top of the draft, starting with some Canadian content at first-overall. Strickland and Watson both have Thornhill, Ontarios Andrew Wiggins out of Kansas going first-overall to the Cleveland Cavaliers, where he would join fellow GTA products in Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett. "A unique situation where talent and need are both met. Wigginss upside is high and will excel at the pro level," says Watson of the pick. Wigginss Jayhawks teammate, centre Joel Embiid, is Watsons choice for the next pick to the Milwaukee Bucks. Watson agrees with the assessment. "Embiid is the logical choice," says Strickland. "His back issues might be a red flag for some, but its hard to pass on this potential." For Strickland, the next Canadian to go in the first round willl be Syracuse point guard, Tyler Ennis.dddddddddddd He has him going at #6 to the Boston Celtics. "Excellent pick, especially if Rajon Rondo is no longer in Bostons future plans," says Strickland. "Smart, tough, solid and may get the keys to the car before trade deadline." Watson also sees Ennis being taken early on, but not until the 15th-selection and the Orlando Magic. While Strickland sees a pair of Canadians heading to Arizona with Melvin Ejim of Iowa State going at #14 and Arizona States Jordan Bachynski going at #27 to the Phoenix Suns, theres no place for the duo in Watsons first round. The final consensus Canadian to be drafted in the first round will be Michigan guard Nik Stauskas. Strickland sees the Mississauga, Ontario product heading to the Denver Nuggets at #11, while Watson believes hell be taken one pick later by the Orlando Magic. "A flat-out shooter, something the Magic lack and one with an overlooked ability to create his own shot and create for others," says Watson of Stauskas.
