Avs beat Blackhawks in shootout

DENVER (AP) - Chris Stewart scored in the eighth round of the shootout, helping the NHL-leading Colorado Avalanche remain unbeaten at home with a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Dustin Byfuglien had a chance to tie, but sent his slap shot just wide. The two teams engaged in a nine round shootout earlier this season.

Ryan O'Reilly scored twice for Colorado in regulation, while David Jones added a short-handed goal.

The Avalanche moved to 6-0 at Pepsi Center this season, matching the franchise record for consecutive home wins to start a season.

Byfuglien, Duncan Keith and Andrew Ladd scored for the Blackhawks, who lost for the second straight night.

Craig Anderson returned to the net after receiving a rare night off. The Avalanche goalie stopped 29 shots, including a vital save in overtime when he turned back Patrick Sharp's shot.
