Jim Slater was stopped by Semyon Varlamov on a first-period penalty shot after the Avs' Tyson Barrie apparently got his stick up on the Jet centre's hands. Slater is now 0-3 in his career on penalty shots, his last two against Varlamov.

The last Jet to score on a penalty shot was Evander Kane on Oct. 8, 2010 against Michael Neuvirth of the Washington Capitals. Since then, the Jets have been stopped on their last eight attempts.


11-6-2: The Jets' record since Paul Maurice was named head coach.

38: One-goal games the Jets have played in this year, third-most in the NHL.

4: Consecutive games in which the Jets, the NHL's worst faceoff team, have won the battle in the circle. Interestingly, the Jets are 0-3-1 in those games.

1: Points by Avs' forward Matt Duchene Monday night, extending his point streak to eight games (4G, 9A).

1: Number of NHL teams this season -- the Avs being the only one -- to score at least one goal in every game they've played.



Jets' centre John Albert, dressing for his first game since being recalled last week, left early in the second with what was called an "upper-body injury." The Avs lost forward P.A. Parenteau after he injured his knee on a first-period hit by Mark Stuart.
