The Colorado Avalanche dominated the Winnipeg Jets in a 5-2 victory, with Artturi Lehkonen leading the way with a goal and assist. The game was tied at one game apiece in their first-round NHL playoff series. Miles Wood, Zach Parise, Josh Manson, and Valeri Nichushkin also contributed to the Avalanche's win, with Alexandar Georgiev making 30 saves in goal.

The matchup now shifts to Denver for Game 3, where the Avalanche will look to capitalize on their strong home record. Despite being the best home team in the regular season, the Avalanche struggled against the Jets, who handed them two of their nine losses at Ball Arena. Winnipeg, on the other hand, had a solid road record, going 25-13-3 during the season.

The game itself was a rollercoaster, with the Jets taking an early lead before the Avalanche stormed back with three goals in the second period. David Gustaffson and Mark Scheifele scored for the Jets, but it wasn't enough to overcome Colorado's offensive firepower. Connor Hellebuyck made 27 saves for Winnipeg but couldn't stop the Avalanche's onslaught.

The atmosphere in Canada Life Centre was electric, with a sold-out crowd of 15,225 fans cheering on their team. The Jets had their chances, but the Avalanche's relentless pressure proved to be too much to handle. Despite some physical play and penalties on both sides, the Avalanche emerged victorious and tied the series, setting the stage for an exciting Game 3 in Denver.
