Avalanche enter back-to-back set with Kings after 'disappointing' loss

If the Colorado Avalanche need an extra spark heading into the final five-pack of games, they have it -- courtesy of themselves.

A 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks not only snapped their three-game winning streak, but also sent the Avalanche into Friday's road clash with the Los Angeles Kings (21-24-6, 48 points) with extra motivation.

The Avalanche (34-13-4, 72 points) blew a 2-0 lead and lost in regulation when leading after two periods for the first time this season, which leaves them four points behind the Vegas Golden Knights for top spot in the West Division and just one point ahead of the Minnesota Wild. The Avalanche have one game in hand on both Vegas and Minnesota, and will look for a rebound performance, particularly from the top forward line of Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen and the top defense pairing of Devon Toews and Cale Makar.
