The Winning Streak Stops at 3: Jets Fall 5-2 to Avalanche

Embed from Getty Images Today’s matinee against the Colorado Avalanche was a must-win game for the Winnipeg Jets.  The game was not a “do-or-die” matchup, but rather, a game that simply had to be won.

Those…

Michael Hutchinson on the other hand, isn’t playing like an NHL-calibre backup, thus placing more responsibility on the shoulders of Hellebuyck. The Jets need a…
