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

The Jets have been out shot, out played, and outscored. It is a confusing matter since the Jets were rarely out done in all three conditions during the regular season. These are not the same Jets of the regular season and now they are in very real danger of being swept.

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.

Playoff Preview - Game 3: Jets return home hungry for victory against Ducks

Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice has found a way to motivate his players all season long.

The Jets will need a little extra push on Monday night as they look to claw back from a 2-0 deficit in their first-round series against the Ducks.

"There's a long history of down 2-0, feeling pretty down about yourself, and coming back and winning the series," Maurice told CBC News. "These have been tight, tight games and we just need to find a little more of that confidence that will keep us moving quick through 60 minutes."

Maurice is right, the games have been tight. But what has separated the two teams so far is the Jets' inconsistency and the inability to stop the Ducks' big guns — Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf.

Let's take a look at how Game 3 will break down.
