3rd-Seeded ’89-’90 Jets Defeat 6th-Seeded ’95-’96 Jets in Five Games to Advance to Qualifier Semifinal

Outside of one blow out in this series, this was a very tight five-game series. The 6th-seeded ’95-’96 Winnipeg Jets opened up a 4-1 lead after the first period of Game 1, including a hat trick from Alexei Zhamnov, who finished with four goals in the game. However, the 3rd-seeded ’89-’90 Winnipeg Jets eventually took the opening game 8-6 thanks to five goals over the last two periods. Dale Hawerchuk potted a hat trick for the ’89-’90 Jets in the win. The ’89-’90 Jets then took Game 2 by a final of 5-3 with Hawerchuk tallying three assists. Game 3 featured 15 total goals and the ’95-’96 Jets eventually won out by a score of 8-7. The unlikely Craig Janney potted a hat trick for the ’95-’96 Jets while Keith Tkachuk registered two goals and four assists and Teemu Selanne registered two goals and three assists. Game 4 was the big blowout in this series. The ’89-’90 Jets won 10-5 as Hawerchuk led the way again with three goals and three assists. In Game 5, winger Brent Ashton potted two goals, including the game-winner late in the second period, as the ’89-’90 Jets finished off the series with a 5-4 win.
