Ducks drop third in a row
DENVER — Nazem Kadri kept up his scoring tear with a goal and an assist to lift the Colorado Avalanche over the Ducks 5-2 on Wednesday night for their sixth straight victory.
Kadri extended his point streak to 10 games, the longest current run in the NHL. He has six goals and 15 assists during that span.
Cale Makar also scored, his fifth goal in four games, and Jonas Johansson made 19 saves in relief of Darcy Kuemper.
The win was the 194th for Jared Bednar, the most by an Avalanche coach. He tied Bob Hartley on Monday night.
Colorado won despite losing Kuemper for a while to a broken skate blade. Valeri Nichushkin, Alex Newhook and Nicolas AubeKubel also scored for the Avalanche.
Sonny Milano had two goals and John Gibson stopped 32 shots for Anaheim, which has dropped three in a row after winning eight straight.
Kuemper, who finished with five saves, also broke a skate blade in Monday’s win over Ottawa.
