The Winnipeg Jets are in a three-game hole heading into Game 4 of their first-round series against the Anaheim Ducks.

Win and they get to fight another day. Lose and it'll be a quick playoff exit for these Jets, who made their first playoff appearance since relocating from Atlanta in 2011.

While coming back from a 3-0 deficit seems like a daunting task, the Jets are staying upbeat before Wednesday night's puck drop.

"You look at the big picture and it might seem overwhelming," winger Blake Wheeler told the Winnipeg Free Press. "But that's one thing about our team, we've been able to focus on one game all year and pour everything we have into it. That's the one thing that brings me confidence and excitement about the game, it is just one game."

It is one game — and one the Jets must win in order to stay alive.

Let's break down Game 4.

The Winnipeg Jets currently hold a three game deficit in a best of seven series versus the Anaheim Ducks.

We've previously looked at what has ailed the Jets.

Now let's look at what changes could fix the Jets and what the numbers say they should do.

De ja vu.

Seriously? Seriously?

No team should be leading this often yet lose three games in a row. What's going on here.

Lee Stempniak opened the scoring, only to have Cam Folwer tie. The second saw five goals in total. Corey Perry and Jakub Silfverberg scored for the Anaheim Ducks. Tyler Myers, Blake Wheeler, and Bryan Little scored for the Winnipeg Jets.

The Jets only needed to stay ahead by one goal... but they did not. Ryan Kesler tied it with 2 minutes and 14 seconds remaining, and Rickard Rakell delivered the killing blow in overtime.

Let's break it down.
