Jets Vs. Avalanche Score Update: Winnipeg Extends Lead To 3-0 After Two Periods

The Colorado Avalanche had all the momentum coming into Tuesday night's game against the Winnipeg Jets, but they're trailing 3-0 after two periods thus far. Winnipeg led by one score after the first period, and the Jets only expanded their lead with a pair of insurance goals in the second period.

The second period didn't start out well for the Avalanche, as Ryan O'Byrne was penalized for holding and the Jets scored on the subsequent power play. The penalty occurred just 40 seconds into the period, and O'Byrne scored his fifth goal of the season less than a minute later. The two teams held even for the next dozen or so minutes, but Jets got onto the scoreboard again with about five minutes left in the period. Evander Kane scored his second goal of the night and his 17th of the season to put Winnipeg up 3-0.

Shots on goal weren't an issue in the second period for the Avalanche once again as they're now outshooting the Jets 25-18 on the night, but Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec continues to make saves and maintain a shutout. Pavelec shutout the Montreal Canadiens just five days ago and is gunning for his third shutout of the season. Colorado has won five straight games, but that streak may be coming to an end.
