DENVER (AP) - Craig Conroy and Scott Thornton each scored for the first time this season, Sean Avery had two goals and the Los Angeles Kings outlasted the Colorado Avalanche 6-5 on Tuesday night.

Tyler Arnason set up a frenetic finish when he scored with 2:01 left, and the Avalanche had a power play for the final 1:17 after Mattias Norstrom was called for high sticking, but Colorado couldn't tie it.

Avs goalie Jose Theodore, who was seeking his first four-game winning streak since Oct. 31 to Nov. 8, 2005, with Montreal, allowed four goals in the second period and was replaced by Peter Budaj with Colorado trailing 5-2.

Avery's second goal came in the third period and proved to be the game-winner.

After Conroy's goal put the Kings ahead 1-0, the Avs outshot the Kings 7-0 over the final 4:42 of the first period, and two of those went past Dan Cloutier to give Colorado a 2-1 advantage. Marek Svatos tied it 1-1 with 3:52 left when he scored on a power play with an assist from Joe Sakic, and 24 seconds later Wojtek Wolski scored off a give-and-go with Ossi Vaananen.
