The Winnipeg Jets may be among the lowest scoring teams in the NHL, but they're doing enough to be one of the hottest clubs in the league.
Ondrej Pavelec's dominance in net has been key to their success.
With Pavelec likely to get the call again, the Jets will try to continue their impressive play Tuesday night against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Winnipeg Jets are in town tonight, and the Rangers are “fresh” off a five goal third period that led to a win over a good Minnesota Wild team. Four days after that, Ondrej Pavelec will try to keep the Rangers at bay. Naturally, since it’s the Jets before the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday, […]

Johnny Hockey finally is on the score sheet this season.
Johnny Gaudreau scored his first goal of 2014-15 for the Calgary Flames with a pretty power-play tally against the Winnipeg Jets. The former Boston College star beat Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec on a wrap-around that broke a second-period tie and eventually became the game-winner in the Flames’ 4-1 road victory.
Why do the Jets treat Ondrej Pavelec with kid gloves? Why is there no tough love approach for this player compared to others who have received it under both coaches? Is Devon Setoguchi that much worse than Pavelec that he should pay the price of admission to the pine or press box more often?
These are the kinds of questions that Jets fans are asking as the long post-mortem...

At 25, Pavelec is still considered...

Ondrej Pavelec has had more NHL experience by age 24 than most goaltenders have had in a lifetime. Not all of it has been good -- he was relied upon heavily when injury prone Atlanta Thrashers starter Kari Lehtonen went down, and after the trade that sent Lehtonen to the Dallas Stars, Pavelec was going to be the Thrashers' goalie of tomorrow. As fate would have it, he's...
