During the second period of the Winnipeg Jets-Carolina Hurricanes game on Thursday night, Ondrej Pavelec made what might be the best save this year. Hurricanes forward Jiri Tlusty fed a perfect pass across the crease to defenseman Justin Faulk and he had a wide open net. Pavelec was caught out of position and could do nothing but dive across the crease and pray. Amazingly enough he was able to get his stick out far enough to make the stop on Faulk. The save kept the game 1-0 and the Jets went on to win 4-3 in overtime.
BEST OF MAXIM
What we learned tonight at the Jets game is that uncertainty rules. Take a look at the game and then ask yourself would Ondrej Pavelec be the game changer? That is what has happened thus far for the Jets goalie as he made at least 5 game changing saves in the second period alone.
Just like Vancouver does for Luongo with the âLuooooooooâ chants the MTS Centre tonight...
It seems almost fitting that today's game against the Hurricanes coincides with the return of Jets defenseman Zach Redmond to playing hockey, albeit a conditioning stint with the St. John's Ice Caps. It was during a morning skate in Carolina where Redmond and teamate Antti Miettinen collided with the latter's skate landing on the upper thigh of Redmond slicing his leg...
Here is the hit that got some discussion on twitter this afternoon. New York Islanders forward Kyle Okposo hit Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian with a high hit in the head area. No penalty was called on the play and obviously, there could have been a penalty.
