Colorado Avalanche 3 Winnipeg Jets 2 OT (Jets 30-28-7, Road 15-15-3) – It was the third time in four games this season the Jets and Avs needed extra time to decide a game. Don Zimmer Rays Jersey . It was also the Jets fourth game in the last seven to go to overtime. The Jets sit four points behind Dallas for the final playoff spot. The Stars have two games in hand with a home and home series remaining on the schedule. It was the Jets 37th one-goal game of the season. The Jets have now gone four straight games without a win. The Jets now return home for three – Wednesday Vancouver (TSN, TSN 1290), New York Rangers Friday (TSN Jets, TSN 1290) and Sunday against the Stars (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The story of the first period and the game for that matter, was the Jets penalty kill. The Jets were nailed with four minors in the first and killed them all. Al Montoya was solid in nets and the Jets penalty killers were aggressive, strong on pucks and used their speed to keep Colorado from getting set up. On the other side of the leger, Jim Slater on a breakaway drew a penalty shot only to be stopped by Semyon Varlamov. Shots in the first were 11-9 Colorado. Colorado opened the scoring at the 4:38 mark of the second as a John Mitchell pass intended for Nathan MacKinnon went off the stick of Zach Bogosian and in. The goal was initially given to MacKinnon but later changed. It stayed that way until a flurry of goals late in the period. Dustin Byfuglien on the only power play the Jets would get in the game, tied the score at one. It was his 15th of the year and sixth power play goal of the year.? He was in front of the Avs net and put home a rebound. The Jets have scored 32 power play goals. Byfuglien has been in on 22 of them. Blake Wheeler and Bryan Little drew assists, both recording their 51st points of the year. One minute, 48 seconds later Byfuglien would bank one in off Varlamov, his 16th of the year, to give the Jets the lead. Michael Frolik and Little drew assists, and with his 52nd point of the year Little sets a new single season high for points. He also moves a point ahead of Wheeler for the team scoring lead. Byfuglien has now scored the teams last three goals and has back-to-back two point games. It appeared as though the Jets would take the one goal lead into the dressing room, but with 12 seconds left in the period Andre Benoit scored off a face-off win by Mitchell to tie the game. Shots in the second were 15-12 Jets. No scoring in the third, but the Jets killed off two more penalties, ending the night six-for-six, allowing only a total of seven shots against while down a man. Going back to the game in Montreal, the Jets are now on a road run of killing 30 straight penalties.? Their road PK is number one in the NHL. Shots in the third were 10-9 Jets. Just like in regulation both teams had chances in overtime before Matt Duchene ended it with his 21st of the year at 2:33. With the goal Duchene extends his point streak to a career high eight games. Shots for the game were 35-34 Jets. The Jets created a lot of scoring chances using their speed to attack the Avalanche zone, but in the end the goal late in the second was costly. The Jets lost forward John Albert in the second with an upper body injury. Not dressed for the Jets were Paul Postma, Matt Halischuk, James Wright, Chris Thorburn, Grant Clitsome and Mark Sheifele, the last four because of injury. Bogosian led the Jets in ice time with 27 minutes, Little led the way in shots on goal with seven (a season high and ties a career single game high)? and won 15 of 23 face-offs. Jim Slater had a season high 14:54 in ice time and had five shots on goal. Mark Stuart and Evander Kane each had five hits, while Stuart led the way in penalty killing time at six minutes. It was Andrew Ladds 598th NHL game. For Coach Paul Maurice the special team totals were a bit of a concern, as the Avalanche were given six power plays to the Jets one. “Our penalty kill was outstanding and our power play was 100 percent,” Maurice said. “Three power play goals in two games. As for the rest of it, it was a hard fought game. We had some back luck in front of the net. But not a lot of complaints. We didnt give up a whole lot.” On the play of Byfuglien: “He was outstanding. He rested in the first because we couldnt get him on the ice because of all the penalties, after that he was our best player.” As for interference on the goal late in the second: “That is what I was screaming about.” ?Maurice juggled his lines with Frolik back with Little and Ladd, Slater between Wheeler and Byfuglien. “After the first couple of shifts Jim Slater was really strong, I liked that group,” he said.

His four RBIs were a season high as he surpassed 600 career RBIs with 603. Kemp is hitting .400 in 10 games since the All-Star break. "Im not worried about any rumours," he said. "Im just worried about helping my team win." Kemp is playing right field, where he began his career, having been moved from centre field in the Dodgers crowded outfield. "Id play anywhere right now," he said. "Im just happy to be in the lineup." Yasiel Puig had four hits with two runs scored for the first-place Dodgers, who won their season-high fourth straight. Adrian Gonzalez is also hitting .400 since the break. He had two doubles, two runs scored and two RBIs. "Thats what we envision offensively," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "We got contributions from all over." The Dodgers trailed twice in their first meeting with the Braves since eliminating them in a National League division series last season. Puig came up a home run short of hitting for the cycle, lifting his team-leading average to .317. He struck out in his final at-bat after tying his career high in hits. Los Angeles rallied from a two-run deficit to tie it 4-all on an RBI double by Gonzalez and an RBI single by Carl Crawford in the fifth. That set the stage for outfielders Crawford and Kemp to put the Dodgers ahead in the seventh. Crawford had an RBI groundout to second base and Kemp followed with his second two-run shot over the centre field fence for a 7-4 lead. Gonzalez doubled in another run in the eighth. Brandon League (2-2) got the victory in one inning of relief, allowing one hit and one walk. Kenley Jansen got four outs for his 31st save. Kemps first two-run shot in the second briefly gave the Dodgers a 2-1 lead. "Matt did a good job hitting that curveball," Braves starter and former Dodger Aaron Harang said. "Thats the Matt Kemp I remember from the first half of 2012." Freddie Freeman, who went 2 for 4, put Atlanta back in front 3-2 in the third with his own two-run homer. Tommy La Stella tied a career-best with three hits and scored a run as the Braves three-game winning streak ended. Anthony Varvaro (3-3) took the loss, giving up three runs and four hits in one relief inning. Dodgers starter Josh Beckett struggled through another outing. The right-hander gave up four runs and nine hits in 4 1-3 innings,, struck out two and walked one in dropping to 0-5 in his last six home starts. Daniel Robertson Rays Jersey. .
