WINNIPEG Adam Werner made 40 saves in his NHL debut and Nathan MacKinnon had two goals and two assists as the Colorado Avalanche defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-0 on Tuesday for their third straight victory.

Werners shutout is shared with Pavel Francouz, who started in net for the Avalanche but only lasted 31 seconds after getting injured.

Francouz was run into by an off-balance Mark Scheifele and fell back and hit his head on the ice. He went to the dressing room and the 22-year-old native of Sweden stepped between the pipes for his first NHL game.

Rookie defenceman Cale Makar opened the scoring for the Avalanche (11-5-2). Joonas Donskoi had a goal and two assists and Matt Calvert contributed a pair of assists.

Makar now has 18 points in 18 games to lead all NHL rookies. The Calgary native is also on a four-game point streak with four goals and three assists.
