Scouting the Avalanche - LA Kings Insider

Tonight is the first of four regular-season meetings this season between the Kings and Colorado Avalanche, and remember that it’s an early start ( 5 p.m. Pacific time). Watch out for the Avalanche. They’re hungry for a home win, after an 0-3-0 start, and they’re hungry to beat the Kings, who haven’t lost at Pepsi Center since Dec. 9, 2008. Overall, the Kings are 8-0-1 in their last nine games against Colorado. For the latest on the Avalanche, check out a game-preview story from The Denver Post, followed by tonight’s expected lineups for the Kings and Avalanche…
