Avs lose again!

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Todd Marchant snapped a 70-game goal drought, Brandon McMillan got the go-ahead score during a 4-minute power play with 8:37 remaining, and the Anaheim Ducks ended a five-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday.

Ryan Getzlaf also scored and Dan Ellis made 22 saves in his second start for the Ducks since being acquired last Thursday in a trade that sent ineffective backup goalie Curtis McElhinney to Tampa Bay.

McElhinney had allowed 19 goals in four starts while filling in for first-time All-Star Jonas Hiller, who has been sidelined for six games because of lightheadedness after his 12-save shutout win over Edmonton.

Kevin Porter and David Jones scored for the Avalanche, who have lost 13 of 14 and sit next-to-last in the Western Conference.
