By: Winnipeg Tribune Staff Writer

Winnipeg, April 24, 2024 - The Colorado Avalanche seized momentum with a commanding performance, rallying to defeat the Winnipeg Jets 5-2 in Game 2. The victory knots the series at one game apiece as both teams head to Denver for the next leg of the showdown.

The Avalanche's offensive was on full display as they scored four consecutive goals, catching the Jets off their game. Despite valiant efforts from David Gustafsson and Mark Scheifele, who found the back of the net for Winnipeg, it wasn't enough to halt Colorado's relentless charge. Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck put up a commendable defense with 27 saves, but it wasn't sufficient to stem the Avalanche's onslaught.

Special teams played a crucial role in the contest, with the Jets penalty kill unit showcasing a flawless performance, successfully neutralizing all three power play opportunities for Colorado. However, Winnipeg's power play faltered, unable to convert on any of their three chances.

As the series shifts to Denver, both teams brace for a pivotal Game 3 and 4. With the series deadlocked, the stakes are high as each side vies for the upper hand in their quest for playoff glory.
