Winnipeg Jets Clinch Final Playoff Spot In The Western Conference

After the drama taking place in Calgary a night ago, with Nashville staying alive in the playoff race, the Winnipeg Jets have tonight broken their hearts, as they capitalized against the Minnesota Wild, clinching the final spot in the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs out West.

After a hot start to the season, the Jets fell all the way from first place, and were in danger of falling of a playoff spot entirely, but now after a solid last few weeks, they will find themselves up against either the Vegas Golden Knights or Edmonton Oilers in round one of the playoffs.

With one of the best goaltenders in the NHL, as well as a very deep and talented group of skaters, if the Jets can stay hot when the playoffs begin, they'll no doubt be a tough team to stop, but for now, they can rejoice that they once again get the chance to chase the Stanley Cup.
