DENVER (Ticker) -- With the exception of a few games against the

Detroit Red Wings, the Chicago Blackhawks have been unstoppable

of late.

Chicago aims for its third straight win when it visits the

Colorado Avalanche on Thursday.

A stretch that includes a nine-game winning streak, Chicago is

12-2-1 in its last 15 games. All three losses have come against

Detroit, and the Blackhawks have not lost to a team other than

the Red Wings since a 5-2 loss at the Los Angeles Kings on

November 29.

Adam Burish had a goal and two assists and Jonathan Toews scored

twice as the Blackhawks kicked off a three-game road trip with a

6-0 thrashing of Phoenix on Tuesday. Cristobal Huet made 22

saves for his second shutout of the season.

The Avalanche snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1

victory over Nashville on Tuesday.

Wojtek Wolski scored both goals, including the go-ahead tally

with 4:13 left in the second period.

Chicago has won five of the past six meetings between the teams,

including both thus far this season.
