The Colorado Avalanche could be without their leading scorer when they continue a four-game homestand Sunday against the Boston Bruins. Matt Duchene, who tops Colorado with six goals and 11 points, is questionable with concussion-like symptoms he received on a hit by Winnipeg defenseman Jacob Trouba in the second period of Friday’s 3-2 overtime victory.

Boston aims for its third straight victory and seventh in nine contests after beginning its three-game road trip Saturday with a 2-1 triumph in Arizona. David Pastrnak continued his scoring spree in the victory, netting his team-leading 10th goal of the season and sixth in seven contests.

Brad Marchand notched an assist in Saturday’s win, giving him a team-high 16 points and one in six of his last seven games. Captain Zdeno Chara reached a milestone against the Coyotes, setting up Ryan Spooner’s goal for his 400th career assist. The 39-year-old defenseman had gone seven contests without a point and recorded just one in his previous 11 games.

Bourque has recorded four goals in 11 games after scoring three in 49 contests with Columbus last season. The 34-year-old forward, who registered three straight 20-goal campaigns with Calgary from 2008-11, hasn’t reached double digits since netting 18 with the Flames and Montreal in 2011-12. With Duchene a question mark, A.J. Greer, a 19-year-old left wing, was recalled from San Antonio of the American Hockey League and could make his NHL debut on Sunday.

The teams split a pair of games last season with each winning a road contest.
