Andrew Brunette finished with three assists while Paul Stastny added two helpers for the Avalanche, who have lost two straight.

Peter Budaj allowed five goals on 39 shots in the loss for Colorado.

With the shootout tied at 2-2, Brunette was stoned by Burke, who stacked his pads against the left post. Brown then quickly skated in on goal and fired a snap shot through the pads of Budaj to five the Kings the extra point.
