Highlight reel: Jets 4 / Avs 1

Big picture

The Jets won their eighth game in 12 tries and moved their record to 17-14-5 on the season, edging their way into 8th place in the Eastern Conference and a playoff berth. The win was Winnipeg's fifth on the road this season and sets them up for big home games this week against the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday and Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Little picture

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.
