The Montreal Canadiens were the first to allow fans into their building for their playoff matchup and it doesn't seem like other teams want them to have that advantage.
After allowing 2500 fans for Game 6 of their first round matchup against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Ontario government allowed 500 fans for Game 7.
The Winnipeg Jets have announced that after no fans were allowed for their first round matchup against the Edmonton Oilers, there will be fans in the building for Game 1 against the Canadiens tonight.
Just like the Leafs, the Jets will allow 500 fully vaccinated health care workers into the building.
“We can confirm that, for the first time in over a year, a very limited number of fans will be present to cheer on the Winnipeg Jets tomorrow night,” a government spokesperson told the Winnipeg Sun. “More details will be announced soon, but our government is pleased that some very deserving Manitobans will be at BellMTS Place as the Jets take on – and beat – the Montreal Canadiens.”
While we won't see the classic "White Out" the Jets are known for, at least will have a bit of ambiance in the building tonight.
