DENVER (Ticker) -- The Colorado Avalanche try to extend their unbeaten streak to five games when they return to the Pepsi Center to host the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

The Avalanche are unbeaten in their last four games (3-0-1) since losing their last home games on January 17. They have not gone five games without a loss since an eight-game run from November 27-December 13.

Colorado completed its unbeaten road trip with a 5-3 victory over the lowly Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.

Peter Forsberg had two goals and an assist after missing four games with a groin injury and Teemu Selanne scored his first goal in 10 games for the Avalanche.

Steve Konowalchuk recorded a goal and an assist and Paul Kariya had two assists as Colorado improved to 11-1-1-1 in its last 14 games.

The Avalanche have won four of their last five games at the Pepsi Center, where they are 14-8-2 this season.

Edmonton completed a 1-2-0 homestand with a 4-3 loss to the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Radek Dvorak and Ethan Moreau scored 24 seconds apart in the third period for the Oilers, who nearly erased a four-goal deficit.

Raffi Torres scored in the final minute, but Edmonton could not get even, falling to 1-3-1 in its last five games.

The Oilers are winless in their last three road games (0-2-1) and are 8-11-5-1 away from home this season.

Colorado has won two of three meetings with Edmonton this season, including a 6-1 win here on October 23. The Avalanche are 7-1-1 in their last nine home games against the Oilers.
