Note: The Jets are in the mile high city to take on the Avalanche in the second and final game on this mini road trip. Colorado has been on a downward spiral as they continue to head the wrong way in the standings. The Avs have just one win in their last six games which includes a 6-2 shellacking by the Jets last week in Winnipeg. It should be an interesting contest at the Pepsi Center starting at 8 pm cst and as always keep it locked to @illegalcurve for all the latest pre & post game Jets content.
