Avalanche beat Kings 2-1 in shootout to extend road streak

LOS ANGELES (AP) Joonas Donskoi scored in the shootout and the Colorado Avalanche earned their sixth straight road win with 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

Ryan Graves scored for the Avalanche, who have won 11 of their past 15 games. Pavel Francouz saved two shots in the shootout after making 20 saves through overtime for his third straight win.

"Just with all the guys we have out of the lineup, we have to check hard. I just don't see us putting up a lot of goals with a bunch of the key guys missing," Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. "Stick with it, be a resilient team, and that's something we're going to need here down the stretch."
