    CHICAGO (AP) It’s lucky No. 13 for Nathan MacKinnon. Just one of several positive streaks for Colorado at the moment.MacKinnon had two assists Paul Carey Jersey Womens , extending his point streak to a career high-tying 13 games, and the Avalanche beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-1 on Tuesday night.Alexander Kerfoot scored twice and Semyon Varlamov made 44 saves as Colorado won for the fifth time in six games and improved to 8-1-3 in their last 12. Mikko Rantanen and Tyson Barrie each had a goal and an assist, and Erik Johnson added an empty-netter.The Avalanche (40-25-8) snapped a tie with Anaheim for the top spot in the Western Conference wild-card race and moved within two points of Minnesota for third place in the Central Division.”It’s crunch time and I think, not just myself, but everyone is playing really well,” said MacKinnon, who has 13 goals and 13 assists during his streak. ”We’re finding our gear and Varly has been really good, too. If you don’t have goaltending Chris Tierney Jersey Womens , you’re not going to win in this league, obviously. He’s been awesome.”Chicago (30-35-9) lost for the sixth time in seven games. Defenseman Brent Seabrook scored his fifth goal of the season for the Blackhawks, and Anton Forsberg made 35 stops in his first start since he was pulled in the first period of Thursday night’s 6-2 loss at Winnipeg.The last-place Blackhawks were eliminated from postseason contention with the loss. They had made the playoffs for nine straight seasons, winning three Stanley Cups.”We had a disappointing second half to the season, to say the least,” star forward Patrick Kane said. ”It seemed like a lot of the games throughout the year went the way they did tonight: We score first and give up one, lose momentum and can’t regain it. Disappointing season? Yep.”Seabrook’s power-play goal put Chicago in front with 4:15 left in the first period, but Colorado responded with three in the second.With Andreas Martinsen in the box for slashing Tyson Barrie Jersey , a wide-open Kerfoot jumped on a rebound and beat Forsberg from the slot at 2:07. Kerfoot snapped a 14-game drought with his 16th of the season.The Avalanche then grabbed a 2-1 lead on their next shot. MacKinnon drew Forsberg over to one side of the net before playing it across to Rantanen for the easy one-timer at 5:01.”We’re playing with a lot of confidence right now and our top line has been really hot,” Kerfoot said. ”We know we can score goals and obviously with Varly playing like that, we’re a tough team to beat.”Rantanen extended his point streak to seven games. The 21-year-old forward is tied with MacKinnon for most points in the NHL in March with 20 apiece.Rantanen and MacKinnon each picked up an assist when Barrie scored from the high slot on another power play, making it 3-1 at 12:40. Barrie extended his career-best point streak to 11 games, the longest run for an Avalanche defenseman since the franchise moved to Colorado.”Barrie’s been driving our offense from the back end for quite some time now,” coach Jared Bednar said.Chicago had three more power-play chances in the third, but came up empty each time. Johnson scored from the other end of the ice at 18:04, and Kerfoot made it 5-1 when he beat Forsberg with 57 seconds remaining.NOTES: Blackhawks C Matthew Highmore was scratched after he went hard into the boards during the second period of Sunday night’s loss to St. Louis. Martinsen was recalled on an emergency basis from the minors and put a big hit on Avalanche D Nikita Zadorov in the first period.UP NEXTAvalanche: Host the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.Blackhawks: Host the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.—Jay Cohen can be reached at— TAMPA Matt Martin Jersey Womens , Fla. — The Tampa Bay Lightning swarming offense has overrun opponents on the first three games of a five-game homestand.The Lightning look to continue that trend and ground the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday at Amalie Arena.Tampa Bay has scored the opening goal in each of the past three games, twice in the opening minute of the first period. In the past two games, the Lightning have built 3-0 leads by the midpoint of the opening period and rode that momentum to victory while riding a three-game win streak.Article continues below ...“When you’re up pretty early, it’s a tough hole to climb out for teams,” said Lightning center Brayden Point, who has 17 goals and 31 points on the season. “Sometimes even if they outplay you, it’s still a tough way to get out of. Getting the jump on things early is huge, and the past couple of games we’ve been able to do that Seth Griffith Jersey Womens , which is nice.”The Lightning also hope to get back forward Ondrej Palat, who has missed the past 15 games with a foot injury suffered on Oct. 26 in Vegas.Palat has been skating with the team in recent practices and on Monday worked in a line rotation as Steven Stamkos was given the day off for maintenance purposes.“I feel pretty good. Conditioning getting there,” Palat said. “Today was kind of the first practice, practicing on a line. That was nice to be back with the team on the ice rather than skating by myself.”Defenseman Anton Stralman remains out with an undisclosed upper-body injury. He has missed eight consecutive games.Anaheim saw its four-game streak with at least a point come to an end with a loss in Nashville Sunday. The Ducks have points in five of their past seven games (3-2-2) as they start their first trip to the East Coast.The Ducks made a handful of roster moves before heading out on the road, sending former first-round pick Max Comtois back to Drummondville in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League as well as 20-year-old defenseman Josh Mahura to San Diego in the American Hockey League.Anaheim called up veteran defensemen Andy Welinski and Andrej Sustr, who spent the previous five seasons in the Lightning organization.“They’ve all got to play, all young players,” Anaheim head coach Randy Carlyle told the Orange County Register. “There’s a mandate there. It’s not written in stone Jack Roslovic Jersey Womens , but when you have young players, it does them no good to sit on the bench. It doesn’t. It’s as simple as that. They’ve got to play.”The Ducks also hope to get back center Carter Rowney possibly as soon as Tuesday. Rowney has been out since suffering an upper-body injury on Oct. 13 but has been skating with the team as he nears a return.“He’s becoming an option,” Carlyle said.
