Recap: Avs grounded by Jets in a 5-0 shutout

Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports Connor Hellebuyck’s 31st career shutout came against a depleted Avs lineup. On Hockey Fights Cancer night in Winnipeg, hockey nearly fought a broken zamboni as the game got off to a delayed start because one of the ice cleaning vehicles had to get towed before the teams could take the ice. That zamboni wasn’t the only broken thing on the ice this night, as the injury riddled Colorado Avalanche barely showed up to play the streaking Winnipeg Jets and got shutout in a 5-0 loss.

While the Colorado Avalanche have muddled through some early season injuries, the Dallas Stars came out hot to begin the year, and Monday night’s contest pitted the defending Stanley Cup Champions against the only team above them in the standings. It was as physical and tightly contested as expected, as the most anticipated regular season contest to date lived up to expectations and felt very much like a playoff game. First Period The Stars came out hot and...
