    If Mason is playing anything but last nights mop up duty, the Jets are in serious trouble.

    Helle usually bounces back from a tough outing very well. If he doesn't, this series is probably tied going to game 5.

    That said I'm pretty confident still. Wild had their backs against the wall and the Jets top line were a little sloppy.

    Keep the game 5 on 5 and the Jets can slowly choke the Wild out.

    Mason is not starting a game.

    If Helle got hurt, they'd call up that accountant from Chicago.

    I'm a Wild fan and if somebody would've made me put my life savings on either a 4/5 game series vs. 6/7, it would've been the former (and still might be).

    Seeler and Soucy have done an admirable job so far, but we'll see which Jets team shows up tomorrow night. It could very easily be the one from games 1 and 2.

    From the start I stated Jets in six and I still am for now...but were now missing 50% of our top six D which is massive problem and a good top 9 forward. Injuries are piling up for us, each man we lose is an advantage for the Wild. The longer this series goes the bigger advantage for the Wild imo. Wild also own a big experience advantage over a young Jets team. I have a lot of respect for the Wild b/c they deserve it.

    Missing 50% of our top six D is a massive problem. We have too many AHL level guys playing on our roster now, especially on D.

    Yeah, we know that game.

    I had Jets in 6 with a healthy Suter, so let's just say his injury didn't improve my thinking. Last night was a pleasant surprise, not only winning, but looking like we belong on the same ice. We'll see if we can keep riding that wave.

    I thought I saw it posted somewhere that his numbers the next game are very good indeed and include a shutout or two if I'm not mistaken. He rarely sucks 2 games in a row.

    Are people really saying that Helle had a bad game? The only weak one he let in was the Staal goal and that was one helluva shot.

    Wild fans are cocky? I don't see it. Most of us still think we are going to lose this series.

    Game 3 was closer than either game 1 or 2

    Sure was. In fact, if I were the Jets, I would play the exact same way. No need to change a thing.

    What goals do you blame him on?

    1. Made a great save going post to post and nearly got back across to save the Granlund shot. Stoppable, but hardly a 'bad' goal.
    2. Puck got passed right around him. Defensemen have to take that away, maybe he gets his leg on that, but it's not really on him to stop passes that are going wide of the net.
    3. Dumba's shot somehow got past 5 guys screening him infront of the net.
    4. Staal great shot, but Helle needs to stop that.
    5. No idea how that shot squeezed between the human wall of Chiarot and Myers. For both goals 4 and 5 watch the replay angle from behind the net. Absurd how those pucks find their way on net.
    6. Slap shot going wide hits Foligno and bounces in.
    I'm really only putting him on the hook for the Staal goal. Just a case of everything finding its way into the net. Those games happen, but it's nothing he needs to "shake off" in my opinion.

    I think Hellebuyck bounces back in game 4.

    This awful game 3 was definitely an eye opener for this team and let them know that Minnesota is not going to just give you easy games.

    Haven’t seen a single cocky wild fan in here. I know it’s popular to just make up stuff on HF but it’s not gonna fly this time.

    evidently there are people out there for whom "we have a chance" is being cocky and dismissive of the Jets.

    We wouldn’t have the luxury of two more bad games or two bad periods even.

    As this series goes on it is becoming more apparent that Jets fans are the softest fan base in the playoffs.

    Jets fans are really calling for Foligno to be SUSPENDED!?! Pathetic.

    Welcome to playoff hockey kiddos. If you're going to have a team capable of making the playoffs you need to toughen the **** up as a fan base.

    I’m in agreement, however roles reversed and Dumba down many of your fan base would freak.
    It was an unfortunate circumstance

    I wouldn't call Jets fans soft. I do think that there are quite a few that are new to the emotion of playoff hockey though. There are also plenty of Wild fans getting caught up in it as well.

    There aren't any cocky Wild fans in this thread. You must be greatly mistaken.

    I had Jets in 5, still sticking with it. Jets lost the game I figured they would, just not as bad as I expected...so next 2 games I will be like the first 2..
