True North spokesperson Scott Brown confirms the Jets have been diverted to Duluth.

No immediate word on their next move - wait out the weather (MSP is hoping to re-open to flights at 7 p.m.) or try to bus.

All flights out of Minneapolis airport, from now until 7 pm, cancelled.  Biggest April snow dump in Minnesota history. #NHLJets.

Minnesota State Patrol says 245 crashes reported already. 22 involved injuries. 2 serious. Hwy 52 (I-94) closed in both directions, from Coates to Hampton.  #NHLJets.

Laine?s violin was a prank to Mikko Koivu from TPS Turku. Iconic Timo Nummelin from TPS Turku was known for his goal celebration in which he imitates playing a violin with his stick. This is mentioned in TPS's goal song. #NHLPlayoffs2018 #Jets #mnwild

I?m really surprised the Jets didn?t leave last night given the fact a massive storm was brewing for today. I wonder what the NHL will do if the Jets can?t make it there on time? Start by pushing back game time or postponing until Monday? I really hope people are not taking risks out there on the roads. Hopefully our team and fans all arrive safe and sound. This could be a big break for the wild...

I checked MSP airport arrivals. 90% of flights are cancelled or delayed, but some are still arriving on time.  One from Duluth is scheduled to arrive at 4:35pm.

Well at least they can sleep in their own beds tonight...the flight isn?t overly long to Minny - and good thing it isn?t an afternoon game. 

I actually expect them to lose one in Minny. I think the Wild know they were embarrassed and will come out much faster.  Wouldn?t surprise me to lose one in OT then win the rest of the series in 5 games

True, but I?m thinking of the extra time spent in the cramped seats of the plane, an early morning flight tomorrow as well as game day routines being disrupted. I read somewhere that the Jets stayed on the plane in Duluth. I think the best we?ll do in Minny is a split 1-1. I hope I?m wrong.

Most players have been skipping the game day skates. No big deal imo.

I?m curious who did the travel planning planning for the Jets. First why didn?t they fly out last night, knowing the forecast?  Second, before flying out today, did they not know the conditions in Minneapolis, or did that change while they were in the air?

Just make sure the boys have their portable game consoles on the plane and everything will be just fine...
