Avs 4, Ducks 3

DENVER (AP) - Andrew Brunette scored two third-period goals and had an earlier assist to lead the Colorado Avalanche to a 4-3 victory over Anaheim that snapped the Mighty Ducks' six-game winning streak Tuesday night.

Brunette's winning goal came at 13:57 of the final period, when he deflected a slap shot from Brett Clark past goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere.

Clark added a goal, and Brett McLean also scored for Colorado. Ryan Getzlaf, Teemu Selanne and Sean O'Donnell scored for the Mighty Ducks, who fell short in their attempt to come from behind to win in six straight games.

The Avalanche moved two points ahead of idle Calgary in the race for first place in the Northwest Division. Calgary plays Los Angeles on Wednesday before facing Colorado at home on Friday.

Anaheim struggled on the power play after going 9-for-15 in its previous three wins. The Ducks failed to score on all five of their chances, including one in the final four minutes.

Brunette scored at 7:41 in the final period to put the Avalanche up 3-2, but Getzlaf tied it again 33 seconds later when he put the puck past goalie Peter Budaj's stick side. Budaj struggled to protect his right side, allowing all three of the Ducks' goals to go by him there.

Budaj made 28 saves, and Giguere stopped 31 shots.

Selanne scored against his former team and tied it at 2 at 4:15 of the third period after taking a pass through the crease from Todd Fedoruk.

Clark scored his eighth goal to put the Avs up 2-1 early in the second period. He took a pass in front of the net from Brunette, who was sliding on his knees toward the boards. McLean had tied it at 1 at 15:39 of the first period, putting the puck past Giguere's glove side.

O'Donnell scored the Ducks' first goal of the night, his first since he was traded to Anaheim from Phoenix on March 9 and his second this season.

Notes: Colorado captain Joe Sakic had three assists to extend his point streak to eight games. ... Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney stood on the ice during the second intermission wearing a Denver Broncos jersey to follow through on a bet he lost to Colorado Gov. Bill Owens when the Broncos beat the New England Patriots in the NFL playoffs earlier this year. ... Anaheim D Vitaly Vishnevski left the ice bleeding in the second period after taking a puck to the face. He returned later that period. ... The Ducks failed to tie a franchise record with seven straight wins
