It was also a bitter end to the Jets' first playoff game on home ice in almost 19 years.
A sea of white jerseys, shirts and towels flooded the MTS Centre as part of the Winnipeg Whiteout, and fans loudly cheered for the home team right until the end.
"We thought we had this one, and we didn't."
Some fans, like Garrett Malcolm, remain hopeful that the team can come back in the next game, slated for Wednesday.
"We saw the L.A. Kings come back from down 3-0 last year and I think we can do it," Malcolm said. "So I'm going to be there for Game 4 and I think we can do it."
