2020 Stanley Cup Play-In Series: Jets vs. Flames pre-game 1 report

Getting you set up for Game 1 of play-in series between the Jets and Flames.

Rogers Place

142 days after last playing a game that counts in Edmonton the Jets will do so again although this one against the Flames is a wee bit more important.  The projected lines are based on the exhibition game Winnipeg played against Vancouver on Wednesday.  The only question mark is the status of Nikolaj Ehlers who left the exhibition game in the 3rd period. Head coach Paul Maurice said “sure” when he was asked if he would practice with the Jets on Friday.
