All four lines were clicking in this match and the Jets used short shifts and attention to detail to overwhelm a fatigued Colorado club that had won five straight and eight in a row at home coming into the match. The Avs played Monday night, beating the Wild in Minnesota, before zipping back home to host the Jets.
