Toffoli scores on breakaway late in 2nd period to lead Kings in 2-1 win over Avalanche @NHLdotcom

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Tyler Toffoli scored a breakaway goal late in the second period, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Colorado Avalanche 2-1 on Sunday night.

Marian Gaborik also scored, Jonathan Quick made 21 saves, and the Kings beat the Avalanche for the sixth straight time and improved to 8-0-1 in their last nine meetings.

Just 23 seconds after Matt Duchene tied the score at 1-1 on the Avs' potent power play, Toffoli intercepted Erik Johnson's pass and raced down the ice to beat Reto Berra over his glove hand and regain the lead.

Berra, coming off a shutout at Anaheim on Friday night, finished with 38 saves.
