Avalanche visit Ducks with big goals in mind

The Colorado Avalanche are not just battling for top spot in the West Division and overall NHL standings. The Avalanche are chasing their own history.

Heading into Sunday's road clash with the cellar-dwelling Anaheim Ducks, the Avalanche boast a 27-9-4 record, which equals their best 40-game start in franchise history. The 58 points amassed is equal to the 26-8-6 mark the Avalanche collected in the Stanley Cup-winning 2000-01 season and the 27-9-4 mark of 1994-95, the final season the franchise was based in Quebec City.

With that level of play, it's no wonder the Avalanche have made a couple of key additions with Monday's trade deadline looming. After acquiring defenseman Patrik Nemeth from the Detroit Red Wings on Friday, the Avalanche reeled in goaltender Devan Dubnyk from the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.
