We don’t have times yet, but we have dates set for the qualifying round series between the Calgary Flames and the Winnipeg Jets.
Per the league, here’s the schedule:
- 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.
