The Jets won't be flying to Nevada carrying a heavy load of anger or desperation.

After Monday's 3-1 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights tied the Western Conference final best-of-seven series at one game apiece, the Winnipeg players were taking their lumps and confidently looking ahead to Wednesday's Game 3.

"We'll be ready to bounce back," veteran Jets centre Paul Stastny said after the loss. "That's playoff hockey, right?

"We know their crowd's going to be excited," Stastny said. "They're going to feed off that, but we've played in hostile environments.

"We know how to play on the road."

Vegas went up 2-0 in a four-minute span late in the first period Monday. Jets rookie Kyle Connor squeezed it 2-1 early in the third, but Jonathan Marchessault regained the two-goal lead 1:28 later with the top-line winger's second of the game.
