Kings Vs. Avalanche Final Score: Colorado Comes Out On Top, 3-1

The Los Angeles Kings hosted the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night in search of reclaiming a share of first place in the Pacific Division. Although the Kings got on the board first, their inability to consistently find the net that has been plaguing them as of late persisted. Los Angeles ended up taking the 3-1 loss.

The Kings opened the scoring in the second period, as Anze Kopitar netted his 15th goal of the season at 5:26. Cody McLeod tied it up at 13:35 in the same period. Five and a half minutes later, Peter Mueller put the Avalanche ahead 2-1, which would be all the team would need. The goals were the third of the season for both McLeod and Mueller. The score would remain 2-1 until 18:03 of the third period, when Gabriel Landeskog would score his 10th goal of the season during a power play.

Jonathan Quick stopped 28 of 31 shots for the Kings, while the offense for Los Angeles made only 26 shots on goal.
