DENVER (Ticker) - Teemu Selanne's recent scoring outburst has brought him an individual honor while helping keep his team in the playoff chase.

Selanne tries to maintain his scoring pace and lead the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim to their seventh consecutive victory Tuesday when they battle the Colorado Avalanche in their final meeting of the season.

Named the league's Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, Selanne has four goals and six assists in his last four contests. The 35-year-old Finn has 33 tallies and 41 assists this season and has guided Anaheim to a 20-6-6 mark since January 1.

Selanne had two goals and an assist and Andy McDonald added two assists Saturday to lead the Mighty Ducks to their ninth win in 10 games, a 5-2 triumph over the Phoenix Coyotes.

Anaheim is tied with Colorado and Calgary at 86 points, two ahead of Edmonton and Vancouver, who are tied for seventh in the Western Conference playoff race. However, the Avalanche and the Flames share the top spot in the Northwest Division, while Anaheim is 13 points behind Dallas in the Pacific Division.

Milan Hejduk scored his 22nd goal and Joe Sakic registered his 45th assist - giving him six goals and six assists in seven games - for Colorado in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Colorado won the first two meetings against Anaheim this season before the Mighty Ducks received a penalty-shot goal from Jonathan Hedstrom in a 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche last Wednesday.
