GDT: Winnipeg Jets at Colorado Avalanche

New, comments

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.
