DENVER (AP) - Alexander Frolov scored twice and the Los Angeles Kings chased struggling goalie Peter Budaj with a three-goal onslaught in the second period before holding off the Colorado Avalanche 6-5 on Wednesday night.
Frolov's power play goal broke a 1-1 tie after John-Michael Liles went to the penalty box for hooking in the opening minute of the second quarter.
Nineteen seconds later, Jack Johnson's one-timer made it 3-1. Then Dustin Brown picked up a loose puck in front of Budaj, skated behind the net and passed it to Jarret Stoll, who put it high over Budaj, who was scrambling back into position.
