The Winnipeg Jets have done well for themselves within the Central division as they are currently in the top spot. They have also won two-straight outings after picking up a win over the New York Rangers thanks to two early goals by Mark Scheifele.
The Colorado Avalanche find themselves within the cellar of the exact same division as they have dropped eight straight games. Their last loss was versus the Toronto Maple Leafs as Colorado was able to score only two goals despite having 36 shots on goal in the contest.
The Avalanche can certainly put points on the board as they are averaging over three goals per game. On the other hand, their defense is ranked 18th and 25th in shots on goal per outing along with goals allowed.
They allowed the Maple Leafs to score five goals on just 26 shots on goal in their most recent loss. And while Ryan Graves tied the score at one all in the first period, the Rangers scored three straight goals before Alexander Kerfoot scored a final goal for Colorado in defeat.
Colorado allowed seven goals to the Jets in their last meeting in January as Phillip Grubauer had a .700 save percentage on 21 shots on goal for the Jets. Graves scored a goal in the contest while Nathan McKinnon had two assists in the loss.
After a three-game losing streak to where their offense struggled, the Jets have all but erected themselves by winning two straight. Also, their offense has posted seven goals during this time while the defense allowed just four goals.
And while Mika Zibanijad also scored twice for the Rangers, Scheifele scored twice for the Jets in the win as they had a total of 36 shots on the night. Conner Hellebuyck had 34 saves on the night while having a save percentage of .910 for the contest.
