The Winnipeg Jets will open the Stanley Cup playoffs on Tuesday.
The Jets will open their Western Conference First Round series at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., on Tuesday, April 18, against the Vegas Golden Knights followed by Game 2 in Vegas on Thursday, April 20.
Winnipeg finished the 2022-23 season with a record of 46-33-3, good enough to claim the second Wild Card spot in the West. The Golden Knights finished 51-22-9, first in the Pacific Division and first overall in the West.
The Golden Knights finished the season on Thursday night in Seattle with an impressive 3-1 win. The Jets lost 4-2 in Colorado in its final game of the year on Thursday while resting seven of its 10 best players. Vegas is heavily favoured (monstrously favoured) to win this series quickly.
The Jets have a 0-2-1 record against Las Vegas this season.
