Winnipeggers are partying in the streets!
The Jets eliminated the Nashville Predators in seven games and have advanced -- for the first time in Jets franchise history -- to the Western Conference finals! If they win the Western Conference championship, then they will play the Eastern Conference champions for THE STANLEY CUP!
In this series, the Jets are playing the Las Vegas Golden Knights, the NHL's Cinderella team. They are a brand new expansion team, only in their first year of existence. It's unheard of for such a new team to even make the playoffs in its inaugural year, let alone get to Round 3! Obviously the Golden Knights are a phenomenal team. But Winnipeg is hot too and WE CAN TAKE THEM!

The Jets have already won the series' first game against the Golden Knights on Saturday. The second game is on tonight.
Time to put on my LUCKY JETS PJ PANTS!
GO JETS GO!
