LAS VEGAS - T.J. Hensick scored the lone shootout goal, giving the Colorado Avalanche a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night in an NHL pre-season game at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
