  • Game 1: Saturday, August 1
  • Game 2: Monday, August 3
  • Game 3: Tuesday, August 4
  • Game 4: Thursday, August 6 (if necessary)
  • Game 5: Saturday August 8 (if necessary)

Times will be released with the broadcast schedule in the coming days. The Flames will be the home team for Games 1, 2 and 5 (if necessary) and have last change, the better bench and the nicer locker room. They were the 8th-best West team in the regular season, while Winnipeg was the 9th-best.

The winner of this series will advance to the Western Conference Quarterfinal round. The playoffs re-seed after every round, so the strongest surviving regular season team plays the weakest surviving team (and so on).

Training camp opens league-wide on Monday.
