It's lapses like this that that have fans scratching their heads, hoping for a more complete game from a team that is clearly in this series.

It's going to be important. "It'll be a matter of who wants it more", Jets centre Mark Scheifele said Friday.

Game 4 is Thursday night in Winnipeg before things shift back to Nashville for Game 5 on Saturday. "And then they have a real good transition game".
