Landeskog, Jones help Avalanche rally in home opener to beat Kings 3-1

DENVER - Gabriel Landeskog and David Jones scored 1:35 apart in the final period to help Colorado rally for a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night in the Avalanche's home opener.

P.A. Parenteau also added his first goal in an Avalanche sweater midway through the third period to help the team bounce back from a season opening loss in Minnesota.

Kyle Clifford's goal in the opening period gave the Kings their first lead of the season and, given the way Jonathan Quick was playing in net, looked like it just might hold up.

But Landeskog beat Quick with a shot off a rebound early in the third. Soon after, Jones followed by sending a wrist shot over Quick's outstretched glove on a power play.

Semyon Varlamov made the lead hold up as he finished with 28 saves in front of a revved-up crowd.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
