ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Colorado Avalanche look to extend their road unbeaten streak to six games Friday when they visit the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.

Colorado is 2-0-3-0 in its last five road games. It had an eight-game undefeated streak overall come to an end Wednesday with a 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Joe Sakic scored both goals in the losing effort to raise his season total to 11. Sakic is four goals behind team leader Milan Hejduk.

Even though it lost, the Avalanche are an impressive 11-3-5-1 in the last 20 games.

The Mighty Ducks endured their first home regulation loss in nine games, 3-2, last Sunday to the Edmonton Oilers. They are 6-1-1-1 in their last nine home contests.

Overall, Anaheim has lost two in a row, but has earned points in 13 of its past 18 games.

Petr Sykora and Andy McDonald tallied Sunday for the Ducks. Rookie Garrett Burnett notched his first NHL point with an assist on McDonald's goal, while Sergei Fedorov added his team-leading 13th assist. Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who picked up an assist, turned aside 26 shots.

This meeting will be the second of four between the teams. The Avalanche edged the Mighty Ducks, 2-1, in overtime on November 18. Teemu Selanne scored against his former team with 1:49 left in overtime.

Colorado is 21-9-7-2 all-time against Anaheim.
