On the wake of COVID-19 scheduling interruptions including the Winnipeg Jets, Edmonton Oilers, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators and Vancouver Canucks (AKA five of the seven North Division teams) the National Hockey League has provided a change in schedule for both the Jets and Senators.
After originally postponing the two games between the Canucks and Jets set for April 4 and 6 from Bell MTS Place – which would have given Winnipeg a much-needed five-day break between contests – the League has intervened and pulled ahead the previously scheduled May 7 matchup between the Jets and Sens to now be featured on Monday, April 5.
Monday’s game is a 6:00 PM start and will be featured on TSN. Following the game, Winnipeg will travel out east to take on the Montreal Canadiens in two-straight matchups on Thursday and Saturday. The team will then face off against the Sens in Ottawa two more times, before heading to Toronto for a rare single game against the Maple Leafs.
Following the short road trip, the Jets will host six-straight matchups from Bell MTS Place, which will feature three games with the Edmonton Oilers and another three with Toronto. Despite taking away the home series against Vancouver, Winnipeg will still see 14 games in 29 days of April.
