Avs Take Frozen Fury XIV
Matt Duchene tallied his first two goals of the preseason in a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Las Vegas, NV., on Saturday night.

The lead would increase to two, when Paul Stastny scored an unassisted goal less than a minute later. 

Duchene would tally his second goal of the night on a five-on-three power play, as he banged home a rebound at 11:47 of the second period.  David Jones increased the lead to four goals just 29 seconds later, putting the game out of reach. 

Simon Gagne scored the lone goal for the Kings 54 seconds into the third period.

Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov turned aside 13-of-14 shots en route to the victory.

Milan Hejduk and Erik Johnson finished with two assists apiece.

The Avalanche finished the preseason with a 2-4-0 record.
