Avalanche 4, Kings 2
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ryan Smyth and Jaroslav Hlinka scored 62 seconds apart early in the first period against Jason LaBarbera in the goalie's first game off the injured list, and Colorado held on for its third straight victory.
Peter Budaj helped send the Kings to their fourth straight loss, making 19 saves after stopping 61 of 63 shots in Colorado's home-and-home sweep of Nashville.
Paul Stastny also had a goal and defensemen Brett Clark had two assists, the first one coming on Smyth's power-play goal. The Avalanche entered the game with only five goals in 65 power plays on the road, the worst percentage in the league.
