After trading Ian Cole earlier in the day, the Colorado Avalanche got out to a three goal lead against the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday night, only to barely hold on for a 3-2 victory in the first game of their California swing. The win pushed the Avalanche record above .500 for the first time this season. Nathan MacKinnon recorded the 500th point of his career as the Avalanche offense was buoyed once again by their powerplay.
