ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Matt Duchene scored the go-ahead goal with 11:51 to play, Peter Mueller scored in his Avalanche debut, and Colorado snapped the Anaheim Ducks' 11-game home winning streak with a 4-3 victory Wednesday night.
Chris Stewart and T.J. Galiardi also scored and Craig Anderson made 31 saves for the Avalanche, who rallied from a 2-0 deficit with three straight goals on the power play before holding off the Ducks, who returned from the Olympic break with six medalists in their lineup.
Teemu Selanne scored his 598th goal for the Ducks, who won 14 of 20 before the break. Captain Scott Niedermayer's power-play goal with 3:05 left trimmed Colorado's lead, but the Ducks ended up with their first loss at the Honda Center since Dec. 6.
