Avs tie record, rout Kings
The success on the ice quickly returned and so will Mikko Rantanen. Another score — along with a big exhale — for the struggling Colorado Avalanche. Rantanen scored two of Colorado’s franchise record-tying six second-period goals, Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 shots and the Avalanche routed the Los Angeles Kings 7-1 on Saturday. Rantanen was sidelined in the third period with a lower-body injuryn.
