Note: The Jets wake up this morning and find themselves in an unfamiliar position for the first time in these Stanley Cup Playoffs after losing consecutive games for the first time they are also down in a series thanks to a 4-2 Golden Knights win in Vegas last night. While the game saw Mark Scheifele set an NHL record for road goals (11) the Jets will be more focused on quickly rectifying the mistakes made in game 3 as they turn their focus to game 4 tomorrow night. The team is holding a media availability later this afternoon (4 pm CT) and the Jets Playoff Practice Report will bring you up to speed with the latest news.
