Avalanche slide into long home stay against Kings

The Colorado Avalanche are back home for nearly three weeks, hoping the comfortable surroundings will help turn their season around.

The Avalanche (21-18-8) open a five-game homestand Saturday afternoon against the visiting Los Angeles Kings, a stretch that will include All Star weekend and Colorado's five-day bye.

The Avalanche are 2-8-2 since Dec. 21, causing their grip to loosen on third place in the Central Division. They wrapped up a five-game road trip with a 5-2 loss on Wednesday to the Ottawa Senators, the last-place team in the Eastern Conference.
