DETROIT (Ticker) -- Pavel Datsyuk and the Detroit Red Wings have had their way with the Colorado Avalanche.

The Red Wings aim for their third straight win and hope to continue their dominance of the Avalanche when the Western Conference rivals square off Sunday.

Detroit has won eight of its last nine meetings with the Avalanche, who are winless in the past four trips to the Motor City. Colorado has not won at Joe Louis Arena since February 14, 2004.

The Red Wings have won two of their three meetings with the Avalanche this season, including a 3-1 triumph here on January 28.

Detroit's leading scorer, Datsyuk has two goals and two assists in the three games vs. Colorado this season.

Detroit picked up its fifth win in seven games with Friday's 6-2 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks. Defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom and Robert Lang combined to score seven points in the victory.

Colorado also is coming off consecutive wins after rolling to a 6-1 triumph at Chicago on Thursday.
