Avalanche face Kings, look for more L.A.-area points

Halfway through the Southern California double, which has been known to give teams a legitimate chance to load up on road points, the Colorado Avalanche would be wise to take a lesson from an Eastern Conference team that was in a similar situation.

The Avalanche earned a 1-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday, and they head to Los Angeles for a game against the Kings on Saturday. Nothing beats a pair of road games when the venues are near each other, except for a pair of close road games against two teams that are struggling.

The Kings and Ducks both have been sellers in advance of Monday's trade deadline, but as the Florida Panthers found out earlier this week, a team in transition can be dangerous.
