ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- Paul Kariya returns to Anaheim with the surging Colorado Avalanche for the first time Friday when they visit the Mighty Ducks.

Kariya missed the Avalanche's first two games in Anaheim, where he spent the first nine seasons of his career. The fourth overall selection by the Mighty Ducks in the 1993 draft, Kariya is the franchise's all-time leader in goals (300) and assists (369).

Colorado is 4-0-2 in its last six games and 8-1-2 in the last 11 games, scoring 40 goals during than span.

Alex Tanguay continued his hot stretch with a goal in Thursday's 3-3 tie in Los Angeles. Peter Forsberg added an assist to extend his points streak to 11, with five in the last two contests.

Colorado also is riding a seven-game road unbeaten streak (5-0-2). Tanguay has eight goals in that run.

Anaheim has just two wins in the new year and is coming off back-to-back losses to archrival Los Angeles. Steve Rucchin had a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Kings.

Colorado has won two of three low-scoring contests with Anaheim this season. Kariya faced his former team for the first time in Denver on January 13 and scored in a 3-1 victory for the Avalanche.
