LAS VEGAS (AP) After the Winnipeg Jets lost Game 3 of the Western Conference final Taven Bryan Super Bowl LI Jersey , goaltender Connor Hellebuyck didnt seem fazed and spoke like a confident veteran rather than a third-year player whose team appears to be unraveling.

The Vezina Trophy-finalist went as far to say he liked his game better than the guy about 200 feet across the rink 14-year veteran Marc-Andre Fleury, who stopped 33 of 35 shots and improved to 10-3 in the postseason.

I like my game, I like it a lot more, Hellebuyck said after making 26 saves in Wednesdays loss to the Vegas Golden Knights. I like my details and will continue chugging away and getting better every single day.

If Game 3 is any indication of the type of game Vegas will bring into Friday nights Game 4, Hellebuyck needs to get better urgently.

I think weve been capitalizing on some chances weve been getting, Vegas forward Cody Eakin said after Thursdays practice. Getting to the dirty area, smackin `em into the blue paint. Hes a heck of a goalie and hes played very well all season and all playoffs for them. Its just one of things where you have a game plan, you stick to it. Whether its the bounces or capitalizing on a rush or whatever it may be Wholesale Josh Jackson Jersey , were just trying to finish every chance we get.

Like 35 seconds into Game 3, when a premature poke-check by Hellebuyck led to a goal by Jonathan Marchessault. Hellebuycks ill-advised mistake allowed Marchessault to use a forehand-backhand deke and give Vegas the momentum early with a 1-0 lead.

In the second period, Hellebuyck went behind the net and lifted the puck to clear it but Erik Haula was there to knock it down and feed James Neal, who found the open net to give Vegas a 2-1 lead just 12 seconds after Mark Scheifele tied the score.

Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice refuses to blame his goalie, though, and seemed fine Thursday, with the rather braggadocious manner Hellebuyck speaks with, despite allowing three or more goals for the second consecutive game and fifth time in his last nine games.

Itll be across the crease Authentic Mason Rudolph Jersey , no chance in hell hes getting that puck, and he believes he can stop that puck, Maurice said. I dont plan to stomp that mentality. He believes he can stop everyone, and then he moves on pretty darned well. He doesnt carry it too heavy with him. Hes got confidence in the right way.

So does Fleury, who leads the NHL with a career-best 1.70 goals-against average during the playoffs. And if the Jets cant get more production outside of Scheifele, theyll find themselves on the brink of elimination after Fridays game.

Scheifele, who now owns the NHL record for most goals scored on the road in a single playoff with 11, has 14 goals and six assists in 15 games. But for a dangerous team that gotten this far because of its depth Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey Elite , guys like Vegas defensemen Nate Schmidt, Brayden McNabb and Shea Theodore have shown they can keep the Jets in their own zone or disrupt things in the neutral zone.

A few miscues and they made us pay for it that cant happen, said Scheifele, who has three of the Jets seven goals in this series. Theyre going to have their games, were going to have our games. We cant sulk on this too long. We gotta pick ourselves up and be ready for a big game on Friday.

The Jets showed some life in the third period on Wednesday, and certainly outplayed what appeared to be a weary Vegas team over the final 20 minutes, but Fleury was outstanding in coming up with tremendous highlight saves to preserve the win.

I think were starting to get a better understanding of how we have to attack and how we have to approach the net, Maurice said. At 2-1 Adidas Jonathan Toews Jersey , were all aware that were down 2-1, but its still fairly early in the series. Both teams are going to come out guns-a-blazing and try to give the other team nothing.

History is against the Jets, who are trailing in a series for the first time this postseason. Teams with a 2-1 lead in the conference final (or NHL semifinals) have won the series 35 of 43 times (81.4 percent) since 1975.

And unless Hellebuycks confidence translates into keeping the puck out of his net, and Scheifele gets some help at the other end, history is bound to repeat itself.
