DENVER (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Devils try to avoid losing consecutive games for just the second time this season on Sunday as they finish a four-game road trip against the Colorado Avalanche at the Pepsi Center.

The Devils had their franchise record-tying 13-game unbeaten streak snapped on Friday but has not lost back-to-back games since October 18 and 22.

New Jersey is winless in its last two games after it was held scoreless in a 2-0 loss to the Dallas Stars on Friday.

The Devils managed 21 shots and went 0-for-3 on the power-play and were shutout for the first time in the regular season since December 18, 2002.

New Jersey had its 15-game regular-season road unbeaten streak ended, losing away from home for the first time since March 13. It is 5-1-3 on the road this season.

The Devils alsolost for the first time in five games against Western Conference this season (3-1-1).

Devils right wing Jamie Langenbrunner suffered a bruised knee in the first period and did not return. He returned to New Jersey to be re-evaluated.

Colorado completed an unbeaten two-game road trip with a 4-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

Joe Sakic had a goal and two assists as the Avalanche won for the eighth time in their last 11 games (8-2-0-1).

Colorado continues to play without star center Peter Forsberg, who has missed the last 12 games due to a groin injury.

Sakic has picked up the slack with 18 points in his last 15 games - seven goals and 11 assists.

Rob Blake had two assists and fellow defenseman Adam Foote added one for the Avalanche, who have gotten an NHL-leading 58 points from their defense.

New Jersey posted a 4-3 victory over Colorado in the first meeting between the teams this season on November 1.
