Los Angeles (4-2-0) at Colorado (2-2-1), 9:00 pm EDT
DENVER (Ticker) -- After a successful homestand, the Los Angeles
Kings embark on a two-game road trip Wednesday when they visit
the struggling Colorado Avalanche.
The Kings won four out of five games following a disappointing
season-opening loss at Dallas. On Sunday, Michael Cammalleri
collected a goal and an assist to help Los Angeles post a 3-1
triumph over Columbus.
Goaltender Joseph Labarbera continued his impressive start as he
stopped 19 shots against the Blue Jackets to improve to 3-0-0
on the young season.
Avalanche top netminder David Aebischer has not enjoyed the same
success as his possible counterpart. The Swiss goalie is just
1-2-0 with a 4.05 goals-against average.
Colorado has lost two in a row and three of its last five games
and has been idle since Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to Chicago.
John-Michael Liles had a goal and an assist for the Avalanche.
Los Angeles and Colorado split their four meetings in 2003-04,
each winning once to go along with a pair of ties.
