Thousands of people made their way to downtown Winnipeg Sunday evening to cheer on the Winnipeg Jets as they played game one of their playoff series against the Colorado Avalanche.

While over 15,000 fans packed Canada Life Centre, a sold-out crowd of 5,000, took in the game from outside the arena, part of the famous Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party.

A sea of white could be seen for blocks as fans dressed in white watched the game on three large screens set up along Donald Street between Portage Avenue and Graham Avenue.

The Salvation Army Centre of Hope also took in the action, with over 60 people including volunteers and their Spiritual Care Team, cheering on the Jets in a special party. 

"Their energy and team spirit were on full display," said the Salvation Army Centre of Hope in a post on Facebook. "Go Jets Go."

Mayor Scott Gillingham also took in the game, cheering on the Jets from Donald Street. 

"Winnipeg Jets fans are the best fans," said the mayor on X.

It was a close game, but in the end, the Winnipeg Jets pulled ahead defeating the Colorado Avalanche 7-6. 

Both teams are back in action tomorrow night at Canada Life Centre.
