GDT: Winnipeg Jets at Colorado Avalanche

In the most important game of the season to date, the Jets face off against the unbeatable Reto Berra and the Colorado Avalanche.

Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

The Winnipeg Jets enter this game in a position to clinch the franchises second ever playoff berth with a win tonight. To accomplish that they have to be the vaunted terrible Colorado Avalanche. Surely this game will end up a complete and utter mess like every other Jets/Avalanche game ever.

A win tonight puts the Jets into the playoffs for the first time since the team moved to Winnipeg.
