For the first time ever, it’s happening. The Winnipeg Jets and the Colorado Avalanche are going head-to-head in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Yep, you heard that right. They finished second and third in the Central Division. This matchup? It’s gonna be a blast.

The Jets, well, they were a bit of a shocker this season. Winning 51 games? That’s solid. They were just a few points shy of catching the Dallas Stars. And Connor Hellebuyck? The guy’s a brick wall in goal. But it’s not all on him. Nope. Winnipeg’s got this balanced attack thing going on. Plus, snagging Sean Monahan and Tyler Toffoli at the trade deadline? Big moves.

Now, the Avalanche. Talk about looking for a comeback. After a rough exit last playoffs, they’re hungry. Nathan MacKinnon? The guy’s on fire. Fifty-one goals and 138 points? That’s nuts. And let’s not forget the rest of the squad. Mikko Rantanen, Cale Makar, Devon Toews – that’s some serious firepower.

So, when’s all this going down? This Sunday. The full schedule’s below, so you won’t miss a thing.
