NBCSN’s coverage of the NHL’s Return to Play continues with Saturday’s Stanley Cup Qualifier matchup between the Flames and Jets. Coverage begins at 10:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Watch the Flames-Jets stream at 10:30 p.m. ET on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.
The only all-Canadian matchup in the Qualifying Round will be the first-ever postseason meeting between Winnipeg and Calgary and just the second game between these clubs this season as the final two games of the season series were cancelled due to play being halted in March.
The Jets are in the postseason for the third straight season after just two playoff appearances in the franchise’s first 17 seasons in the league. The Flames were the top seed in the Western Conference last season before getting upset in the opening round by Colorado in 5 games. Calgary has won just one playoff series in the last 14 seasons since reaching the Stanley Cup Final in 2004.
Out of all the 24 teams returning to play, Winnipeg has the longest active winning streak having ended the regular season with 4 straight wins. They are the only playoff team that has not lost since February – with their last defeat coming in the building they’ll play this entire postseason in, having lost at Edmonton on Feb. 29.
