The Winnipeg Jets are no stranger to the playoffs.
The Jets are looking to carry on the momentum they had when the season was abruptly stopped on March 12 as they take on the Calgary Flames in the best of five qualifying series.
Both teams stack up well but the Jets were 11-5-1 in their latest run while the Flames were 9-7-1. In their only meeting this season, Winnipeg came out on top. The Jets have a slight edge, averaging more Goals For (GF) per game, but the Flames put more pucks on net per game.
