The Winnipeg Jets are playing in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which means they are in a tough spot this season.
The Jets have the third-worst record in the NHL (24-36-5), and the only team with a winning record (22-30-5) is the Chicago Blackhawks, who will play host to the Anaheim Ducks in the first round on Friday night.
The Ducks are just four points behind Winnipeg in the Pacific Division, and are one of two teams that have won three consecutive games.
The Jets are also seven points behind the Ducks in points per game.
They’re also just one point ahead of the Ducks on the Central Division.
If the Ducks lose to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, they will move up to the second wild-card spot in the standings.
If the Ducks win, they’ll move into the final wild-cards spot.
The Kings would then host the Anaheim Mighty Ducks on Monday at the Air Canada Centre.
The two teams will then meet in the Stanley Trophy Playoffs on Feb. 10.
The winner of that game would move up the standings to the Stanley Final, where the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks will play the defending champs from Anaheim on Jan. 7.
The game will be broadcast on TSN3, RDS, Rds, TVA Sports and TSN Radio in Canada.
The series will be televised on Sportsnet and RDS in Canada and TBS2 in the United States.
The Winnipeg Jets won the Stanley Cups in 2008 and 2010, but haven’t won the Cup since 2002-03.
The franchise’s last playoff appearance came in 2006, when they defeated the Florida Panthers 3-2 in overtime.
