As it has been long-rumoured, the Jets will be starting their series on Wednesday at home. They have also lucked out an only have one game starting at 7:00 pm with the rest of the first four games starting at 6:00 or 6:30.

This is an excellent schedule for the fans. The games do not start too late or too early. The first two games will be played in Winnipeg, so downtown traffic will most likely be a mess for people to get to the game or the street party (dress warm if you are going there). There is no word if there will be more buses downtown for the games, but that would make sense when it comes to moving people. When it comes to the away games, fans can easily go and only take a day off work to attend.
