The Colorado Avalanche and Winnipeg Jets will battle in the opening round of the postseason.

Neither club has secured home-ice advantage for the series. That will be decided by which team finishes higher in the Central Division. The Jets sit in second place with a two-point lead on the third-ranked Avalanche through 80 games for both squads.

Winnipeg thumped Colorado 7-0 on Saturday to sweep the three-game season series.

The Avalanche and Jets have never played each other in the playoffs.

The postseason begins next Saturday.
