by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--No one or two players can fill the void left by defensemen Erik Johnson and Anton Lindholm. It will have to be a group effort for the Colorado Avalanche blueliners.

Johnson and Lindholm are out indefinitely after suffering upper-body injuries in the club's last game on Sunday versus the Edmonton Oilers, and neither skater is on the Avs' three-game road trip, which kicks off tonight at the Vancouver Canucks.

Mistakes Hurt Avs Versus Jets

Colorado falls 6-1 in Winnipeg

by Callie Parmele / ColoradoAvalanche.com

The Colorado Avalanche had too many errors at the Winnipeg Jets on Friday and fell 6-1 at Bell MTS Place.  

"It was a big game. We were in position that if we win it then we can get up into a playoff spot possibly tonight," said Colorado head coach Jared Bednar. "I didn't really love our first period, and actually strangely enough I liked our second period better than our first, [even though] we gave up three goals. But some of the mistakes we made tonight, you just can't have them. Win a faceoff on the power play, and it ends up in the back of our net.

"It's things like that I just didn't think we were real crisp on. Final 40 minutes I liked the way we competed, but a couple of our mistakes came back to bite us tonight. It is what it is. We got to move on and get ready for the next one."
