Game 74 Preview: Colorado Avalanche at Los Angeles Kings



And down the stretch the come! The Avs have 9 games left in what may shape up to be the worst season in Avalanche history.  The team needs 6 more points to avoid having the worst season in Avalanche history (the 2008-2009 Avalanche amassed 69 points).

The latest stop in this inglorious quest is the sunny climes of Los An-ge-leeeees (thanks, Van Earl Wright). The Kings are in 5th place in the Western, but they haven't quite solidified their playoff spot; they are just 4 points ahead of 9th place Dallas and 5 ahead of the stupidhead Flames.

Keep an eye out, of course, for Brad Richardson. In 3 seasons since leaving the Avs, he has 18 goals - 5 of which are against his former team.
