Kings 3, Avalanche 2, SO

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Los Angeles rookie Jonathan Bernier stopped both shots he faced in a shootout, and Michael Cammalleri and Dustin Brown scored on their attempts to give the Kings a 3-2 exhibition victory over Colorado on Saturday night.

Los Angeles (3-2) trailed 2-1 entering the third period at the Grand Garden Arena inside the MGM, but Brown tied it off an assist from Anze Kopitar at the 13:19 mark. The Kings killed an Avalanche a two-man advantage later in the period to force overtime.

Bernier, a rookie fighting for a roster spot, stopped two close-range shot in overtime and finished with 24 saves.

Colorado (3-1) led 1-0 after the first period on Tyler Arnason's goal at 12:52.

Kopitar tied it 37 seconds into the second period, but Colorado retook the lead at the 1:23 mark on Paul Stastny's goal.

It was the final exhibition match for the Kings, who open the regular season next Saturday in London against defending Stanley Cup champion Anaheim.
