Darcy Kuemper slams the door on L.A.

Darcy Kuemper played very well, backstopping Colorado to a 4-1 road win over the hosting L.A. Kings on Thursday. He saved 40 of the 41 shots he faced.

Fantasy Impact:

Kuemper had seen 31 shots through two frames and saw the only goal scored on him in the first. He was sharp on the puck and rebound control was noticeably better. Perhaps he was motivated by his back up Pavel Francouz throwing down a shutout the night before. If Kuemper keeps playing like this the Avalanche will be in excellent shape. Through 27 starts he is now 18-5-0-1 with a 2.65 GAA and .912 save percentage.
