The Winnipeg Jets host the Colorado Avalanche in a Tuesday NHL tilt.

The Colorado Avalanche hope to build on Friday’s 6-1 win against the visiting NY Rangers which snapped a six game slide. Ryan Strome scored unassisted in the third period for New York with Alexandar Georgiev absorbing the loss with six goals allowed on 47 shots.

Mikko Rantanen topped the Colorado scoring spree with two goals while Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog, Alexander Kerfoot and Ryan Graves also reached the scoring column. MacKinnon gave the Avalanche a pair of helpers to make the 24 saves of Philipp Grubauer a winner.

The Winnipeg Jets are trying to start a hot streak and might be on their way with wins in two of three after routing Dallas 5-1 on Sunday. Alexander Radulov scored a second period PP goal to give the Stars a 1-0 lead but Ben Bishop struggled with four goals allowed on 29 shots.

Adam Lowry, Tyler Myers, Kyle Connor, Josh Morrissey and Bryan Little all found the back of the net for Winnipeg. Connor Hellebuyck picked up the win for the jets with 26 saves to improve to 18-12-1.

Avalanche are 0-5 in their last 5 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game and Avalanche are 0-5 in their last 5 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game and Avalanche are 0-5 in their last 5 games following a win. Under is 4-0 in Jets last 4 games following a win and Jets are 11-2 in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest and Jets are 5-1 in their last 6 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game. Avalanche are 0-6 in the last 6 meetings in Winnipeg and home team is 20-6 in the last 26 meetings. 

Neither team has been at the top of their game but Winnipeg has enjoyed tremendous success in this matchup…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
