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.
Winnipeg (8-5-2) is averaging...

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.

Since 2011-12, Ondrej Pavelec has allowed a lot of goals. He was beaten 163 times in 2013-14, 119 times in 2012-13 and 191 times in 2011-12 for a total of 473 goals in 169 games over the course of three seasons. What’s the significance? Remarkably, Pavelec has allowed the most goals of any NHL netminder in each of the last three seasons.
If Pavelec is torched again in 2014-15,...
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...
Time is running out for the Winnipeg Jets to make a move to qualify for the playoffs. So late in fact, that they've been forced to pull their goalie.Starting netminder Ondrej Pavelec was absolutely porous in his last four starts before suffering what the Jets are calling a lower-body injury, and his goals against average and save percentage both flirting with mediocrity...
Winnipeg Jets defenseman Mark Stuart was just trying to break up a pass. Unfortunately for him, he slid right into his goalie Ondrej Pavelec and blasted him into the corner. Watching Pavelec roll over his defenseman’s back and yard sale is pretty hilarious, but it gave Ottawa Senators forward Erik Gryba a free goal. Not much anyone could do when it’s basically a 3 on 0 without...
