Kempe helps Kings rally past Avs for first win of season

LOS ANGELES (AP) The first couple weeks of the Los Angeles Kings' season has been defined by blown leads. On Thursday night, they showed that they are able to come back after falling behind early.

Adrian Kempe broke a tie with 3:50 left and Los Angeles Kings overcame a two-goal deficit to beat Colorado Avalanche 4-2 for their first victory of season.

"I thought we showed quite a bit of character," said Anze Kopitar, who had two assists. "We were a little too hesitant at the start. Once we got the forecheck going, we got sustained pressure."
