Wouldn't recommend that. Take the filter off and shake it as much as you can.
The reason your car was sputtering or acted like it wanted to stop was because the MAF sensor most likely got wet.
Ideally you would want to spray it off with some MAF cleaner or some electronics cleaner. Do not use carb cleaner or brake cleaner. The MAF sensor is very sensitive.
