The Winnipeg Jets playoff run came to an abrupt end Tuesday night at Canada Life Centre. 

Mikko Rantanen scored twice in the third period as the Colorado Avalanche defeated Winnipeg 6-3.

Valeri Nichushkin, Yakov Trenin, Artturi Lehkonen and Josh Manson also scored for the Avs who took the NHL's best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series four games to one.

Kyle Connor, Josh Morrissey and Tyler Toffoli replied for the Jets. 

Toffoli's second goal of the playoffs 2:06 into the third period tied the game at 3-3.

Rantanen then put the 2022 Stanley Cup champions ahead for good scoring back-to-back goals at 4:11 and 8:01 of the final frame. 

Winnipeg dropped four straight games after winning the series opener 7-6. 

The Avalanche outscored the Jets 22-8 after losing game one. 

Connor Hellebuyck stopped 27 shots in net for Winnipeg in game five while Colorado's Alexandar Georgiev made 34 saves.

The Jets are 1-8 all-time as a franchise when facing elimination and are 8-19 on home ice in the playoffs. 

The Avalanche will face in either the defending champion Vegas Golden Knights or the Dallas Stars in round two of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
