Twin Cities native and former Gopher Blake Wheeler (Breck HS) is confident the Jets will respond well Tuesday in Game 4 vs. the Wild. Wheeler, the Jets' captain, held court with reporters Monday afternoon in the locker room.

"No team has gone 16-0 in the playoffs," Wheeler said. "At some point you have to deal with the loss, and how you do is the most important thing."


The Jets fell 6-2 in Sunday night's Game 3, yet still the lead the best-of-7 series, 2-1.

Wheeler also talked about playing at Breck high school, and being a multi-sport star -- he played football. Wheeler also mentioned how cool it was to have so many family and friends in the arena on Sunday, and how his Xcel Energy Center story adds another chapter. Wheeler first played at the "X" with Breck.
