The Colorado Avalanche and Winnipeg Jets play tonight at the Canada Life Centre in their second meeting of the season. Both are among the best Western teams, with almost identical records. Winnipeg stole the OT point the last time these two teams collided in Colorado.
The Avalanche have been riding the wave of an injury bug but have done so gracefully. Some young players have contributed, and Colorado’s stars have been just as dominant as ever.
