Duchene, Avs get by Jets in shootout

Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - Matt Duchene had two goals and an assist to spark a Colorado rally, then tallied again in the shootout to help give the Avalanche a 4-3 decision over the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre.

Ryan O'Reilly notched a goal and an assist and P.A. Parenteau delivered the clincher in the deciding phase for Colorado, which bounced back from an early 2-0 deficit to halt a two-game skid.

The Avalanche also received an outstanding effort from Semyon Varlamov in the win, with the goaltender coming up with 34 saves prior to stoning both Jets skaters he faced in the shootout.

Winnipeg was dealt a fifth straight home loss despite two goals from Blake Wheeler. Michael Frolik also scored in the setback, while Ondrej Pavelec finished with 23 saves.
