The Anaheim Ducks and Colorado Avalanche will both be riding a wave of momentum when they face off on Monday night. The Ducks have admirably turned their season around and are 7-1-2 over their last 10 games. While they have little to no chance of making the playoffs, they're within striking distance of avoiding finishing the season in the cellar. Beyond that, they are excellently positioned to play the spoiler throughout the end of the season.

They travel to Colorado on Monday to take on their Pacific Division rivals the Avalanche. Colorado has won three games in a row, while the Ducks have back-to-back wins, including a big win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. They'll try to keep streaking and pick up two wins in as many nights.

The puck drops at 6:00 p.m. PT. The game will be televised on Prime Ticket, or you can listen live on AM 830.
