Jets blank Flames to clinch playoff spot
The Winnipeg Jets booked a ticket to the playoffs with a 4-0 win against the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.
This marks Winnipeg's fourth straight campaign with a postseason berth. The Jets are the third team in the North Division to clinch a playoff spot, joining the Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Jets failed to make it past the qualifying round in last season's return-to-play, losing to the Flames in four games.
Winnipeg sits third in the division with a 28-21-3 record. The club trails Edmonton by seven points and is two ahead of the fourth-place Montreal Canadiens.
