The Colorado Avalanche jumbled up its forward combinations on Monday against the Vegas Golden Knights, and the club went on to win 3-0.

The Avs will keep with the same lineup for tonight's game versus the Winnipeg Jets, as head coach Jared Bednar said following morning skate that he won't make any changes to his personnel or how they are aligned.

That includes in goal where Semyon Varlamov will guard the pipes for the eighth straight contest, extending his season-long streak. Varlamov stopped all 40 shots he faced against the Knights for his 25th career shutout and his fifth when making 40 or more saves.

The Avalanche will be facing the Jets for the second time in seven days after the teams met last Thursday in Winnipeg. Colorado won 4-1 with goals from Dominic Toninato, Gabriel Landeskog, J.T. Compher and Sven Andrighetto and a 24-save performance from Varlamov.

Tonight's matchup is the fourth of five games between the Central Division foes this season and the first in Denver. The clubs wrap up the series on April 4, the Avs' regular-season home finale.

Game time is at 6:30 p.m. MT.
