After two in Denver: Kings 2, Avalanche 0

Brad Richardson, who had a hat trick here on Oct. 23 against his former team but had scored only one other goal this season, victimized the Avalanche again in the second period to give the Kings a 2-0 lead.
Richardson, traded by Colorado to the Kings for a second-round draft pick in June 2008, was stationed in front of the net to take a fine pass by Drew Doughty and tap it in. Doughty had made an excellent move to the outside to elude a defender and see a passing lane. Richardson had easy work to poke it home at 6:31.
Dustin Brown got the second assist, as he did on the Kings’ first goal. He now has eight multi-point games this season.
Jonathan Quick stopped eight shots in the second period and looked sharp throughout.
The Kings had two power plays in the second period, though one was brief, and couldn’t capitalize. Colorado had one power play and was stymied.
