(Sports Network) - The Colorado Avalanche look to maintain their strong recent form when they continue a homestand this evening with a visit from the Dallas Stars.

The Avs have been playing their best hockey of the season as of late. The club has won five of their last six games to jump into a three-way tie with Edmonton and Minnesota for first place in the tightly-bunched Northwest Division.

Colorado has also won four in a row at the Pepsi Center, including Saturday's 3-2 decision over Chicago, and is 10-7-1 on home ice this season.

Wojtek Wolski was the hero against the Blackhawks, as the rookie compiled the first two-goal outing of his brief career. Joe Sakic added a goal and an assist for the Avalanche, while Jose Theodore needed to make only 17 saves to preserve the win.

Dallas comes in off last night's 2-1 loss at Chicago, but will be facing an opponent it has dominated in recent meetings. The Stars have defeated Colorado six consecutive times, including twice this season, and has emerged victorious in each of its last three trips to the Pepsi Center.
