The home team is still searching for its first victory in this topsy-turvy series as the St. Louis Blues host the Winnipeg Jets in Game 4 tonight.

The Blues lead the series 2-1 after dropping a 6-3 decision Sunday night at home to the Jets.

St. Louis rookie goaltender Jordan Binnington allowed more than four goals for the first time in his young career in Game 3. The puck slipped past the 25-year-old six times during the final 35 minutes as the Jets regained some of their swagger.

"We're building every shift, every game throughout the series," Jets forward Kyle Connor, who scored twice in Game 3, said. "We're getting close to our game and it's pretty dangerous."

St. Louis standout Vladimir Tarasenko shrugged off Sunday night's loss.

"There's no panic here. Nobody said it was going to be easy," he said. "We'll be ready for a war next game."

The series will shift back to Winnipeg for Game 5 on Thursday night. The start time for that game has yet to be announced.

The Blues defeated the Jets by scores of 2-1 and 4-3 to open the best-of-seven series in Winnipeg.
