Penalties doom Avs in 4-2 loss to Kings



LOS ANGELES – There are some games when you think, “Now how the heck did they lose that one again?” This was one of those nights, here at the Staples Center. The Colorado Avalanche did lots of really nice things against the Los Angeles Kings, sailing through a first period in which it outscored the L.A. Kings by two goals and leaving you with the feeling that it would be an easy night.


The Avs let the lowly Kings back in the hockey game with two penalties 38 seconds apart, and a team with Drew Doughty on the point and Anze Kopitar on the half-wall is still a dangerous combination. Two power-play goals got the Kings even, and Adrian Kempe tapped in a puck with 3:56 left to break a tie and the Avs somehow lost this one, 4-2.
