Matt Duchene registered his 12th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Carolina.

After suffering through a 10-game goalless drought, Duchene has now posted two goals and an assist in his past three outings. He's one of the better buy-low candidates in the league right now. John Mitchell also scored a goal for the Avs in the loss.

The Colorado Avalanche have to like what they saw from Matt Duchene in Saturday's 4-3 win against the Dallas Stars.

Duchene scored a highlight reel goal and added an assist to contribute to a big win for Colorado. With Semyon Varlamov on a hot streak of his own, Colorado's looking like the 2013-14 team that surprised its way into the playoffs last season.

Matt Duchene isn't too concerned that he hasn't scored a goal in his last 10 games.

"A lot of crossbars, a lot of posts," he said. "But know what, I'm not too worried about it. I went 24 games with one last year, and still had a good season. I've learned by now that this game is full of peaks and valleys. It's how you deal with the valleys that's important. You just try and get better, you try and stay positive." Duchene added that his confidence hasn't disappeared and he feels he's still getting his chances.

Some of the Colorado Avalanche's young snipers are in a major scoring slump.

Gabriel Landeskog hasn't scored a goal in 14 games, Matt Duchene hasn't scored in nine games, and Nathan MacKinnon has only one goal in his last 20 games. After a great regular season last year, the Avalanche are last in the Central Division with 38 points.

Matt Duchene has registered one goal in his last 10 games.

He has three points during that span. Duchene hasn't shooting the puck often lately, which is a good way to start to get back on track. He has 10 goals and 21 points in 36 games this season.

Matt Duchene scored a goal and an assist, plus the shootout winner in Thursday night's 4-3 victory over Winnipeg.

Duchene slammed home the feed from Jan Hejda to tie the game at one early on in the first, and began the rush that eventually led to Jarome Iginla's goal late in the third. Quite a night for the young man who won 62% of his faceoffs in over 21 minutes of ice time.

Matt Duchene scored his ninth goal of the season in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Calgary.

Matt Duchene potted a goal for the Avalanche in their 3-2 win against the Devils on Saturday night.

Duchene had been a bit quiet to start the season, entering the game with just five goals and 12 points. Now he has goals in two straight, however, including the game-winner Saturday. He also had four shots on goal. Duchene should be good for another strong season, with plenty more assists than goals. John Mitchell and Erik Johnson scored the other goals.

Matt Duchene fired home a goal and an assist in Colorado's 4-3 shootout victory over New York on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

The Avs' disappointing start has had an affect on Duchene's stats, as the 23-year-old has five goals and 12 points in 18 games. Duchene had a point in just one of his previous six games going into Thursday night. In order to reach the point-per-game pace he achieved last season, the talented centre will have to pick up more nights like these.

Look for Matt Duchene to step up on Thursday against the Rangers.

The Avalanche got embarrassed by the Islanders on Tuesday in a 6-0 loss. "It's beyond frustrated at this point," said Duchene after the defeat. "I think at some point we've just got to get (ticked) off. We're just deer in the headlights right now instead of just getting angry and making it happen." He has earned just one goal in his last six games. It's been a rough start to the year for Colorado, but Duchene sounds like he'll be plenty motivated heading into Thursday's match.

Matt Duchene scored his fourth of the season in Thursday night's shootout victory over the Maple Leafs.

Duchene's third period goal came off a shanked one-timer from Ryan O'Reilly, he then scooped the puck up and beat Jonathan Bernier around the net to give Colorado the 3-2 lead. He also scored in the shootout by getting Bernier to open up the five-hole. It's like he's good at this game.

Matt Duchene skated between Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog in Tuesday's loss to Vancouver.

The high-powered trio was held off the scoresheet in the match and Colorado blew a 2-0 lead in a 5-2 defeat. Ryan O'Reilly was moved back to center and he was flanked by Jarome Iginla and Jamie McGinn.

Matt Duchene helped get the party started just 2:34 into Colorado's 5-0 win over the Islanders on Thursday night.

Off a dump-in, Duchene beat Isles defender Calvin de Haan to the puck, whirled around and perfectly set up Cody McLeod, of all people, who had beaten Brian Stait. All this just a few shifts into the game. Sometimes you create your own luck by out working the opponent. Duchene also won 71% of his faceoffs in his 15:19 of ice time.
