Adam Lowry and Kyle Connor each scored twice as the Winnipeg Jets defeated the Colorado Avalanche 7-6 Sunday night in front of a sold-out white-out crowd of 15,225 at Canada Life Centre in game one of the NHL's best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series. 

It was Connor's third career multi-goal playoff game while Lowry played in his 45th career post-season game passing Blake Wheeler for sole possession of first place in franchise history.

Mark Scheifele, Josh Morrissey and Vladislav Namestnikov also found the back of the net for the Jets who tied a franchise record for most goals scored in a playoff game with seven.  

Winnipeg scored seven times against the Nashville Predators on May 1st, 2018.

The Jets and Avalanche combined for six goals in the opening frame and six in the third period. 

Valeri Nichushkin, Cale Makar, Nathan McKinnon, Artturi Lehkonen, Miles Wood and Casey Mittelstadt did the goal scoring for Colorado.

Makar's power-play goal at 12:24 of the third period cut Winnipeg's lead to 7-5.

Mittlestadt scored with 30 seconds left in regulation to make it a one-goal game.  

Connor Hellebuyck made 40 saves in net for the Jets while Alexandar Georgiev stopped 16 shots for the Avalanche. 

It marked the third time in franchise history Winnipeg was outshot by 20 or more shots in a playoff game.

Game two goes Tuesday night (8:30 p.m.) at Canada Life Centre.
