Landeskog's Two Goals Lift Avs Past Kings
Colorado Avalanche 3, Los Angeles Kings 2

LAS VEGAS -- Gabriel Landeskog scored twice in the second period Saturday night, rallying the Colorado Avalanche to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings in Frozen Fury XV at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Ryan O'Reilly started Colorado's comeback from two goals down at 8:11 of the second period, and Landeskog tied it at 2-2 with 7:02 remaining in the period, beating Mathieu Garon on the first shot he faced after replacing L.A.-starter Ben Scrivens.

Landeskog got the tiebreaker with 3:54 remaining, knocking in a rebound from just in front of the goal.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 23 saves for the Avalanche (3-3-0), who will open its 2013-14 regular season at 7:30 p.m. (MT) Wednesday at home vs. Anaheim.

Mike Richards scored twice for Los Angeles, putting the Kings (3-3-1) on the scoreboard with 3:22 left in the first and doubling the lead 14 seconds into the second period. Scrivens had 17 saves and Garon finished with nine.

With 15 seconds left in the game, the Kings' Azne Kopitar had one final chance to tie with a loose puck just right of the net, but couldn't get a good shot off.

Offseason-acquisition Andre Benoit had two assists for Colorado, who improved to 6-6-2 all-time in Frozen Fury meetings with the Kings.
