Ondrej Pavelec earned his sixth straight win in fine fashion on Thursday night, turning aside 39 of 41 shots from the Canadiens in a 5-2 victory.

Pavelec improves to 6-1 in the month of March with a .963 save percentage and 1.15 goals against average. The hot 27-year-old is getting the job done for Winnipeg, who are clutching on to the final Wild Card spot in the West with a three point lead over Calgary.

Ondrej Pavelec will get the start in Thursday's game vs. Montreal.

Many people thought Pavelec was the forgotten man behind Michael Hutchinson but the Czech netminder has been much better of late. The 27-year-old has an 18-14-7 record with a 2.36 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season.
Mar 26 - 8:00 PM

With Monday's 4-1 victory over Edmonton, Ondrej Pavelec has now won five straight games.

He made 33 saves in the effort. The Jets have now moved to four points up on the Kings for the final Wild Card slot, and trail Minnesota by just a point as well. Pavelec for his part has a shutout and just five goals against during his streak. His record now stands at 18-14-7 with a .917 save percentage and a 2.36 GAA.

Ondrej Pavelec will start in goal for the Jets Monday night against the Edmonton Oilers.

Monday will be Pavelec’s fifth consecutive start for the Jets who look to continue their playoff push. Pavelec has a .966 save percentage during his four game win-streak where he allowed just four total goals and registered a shutout. On the season, he has a 17-14-7 record with a 2.40 goals-against-average and .916 save percentage. In his only other start against Edmonton this season, he was able to earn the victory making 22 saves on 24 shots.
Mar 23 - 5:29 PM

Ondrej Pavelec has been chosen as the first star of the week.

He recorded a mark of 3-0-0 to go with a 0.97 goals-against average and a .970 save percentage. Pavelec had wins over San Jose and St. Louis before he pitched a 28-save shutout against Washington to close out the week. He's reclaimed his position as the team's number one option for the time being thanks to four straight wins.
Mar 23 - 3:27 PM

Jets' goaltender Ondrej Pavelec has won four consecutive starts.

It looked like Michael Hutchinson had become Winnipeg's starting goaltender but Pavelec has gotten hot at the right time. The 27-year-old has defeated Tampa Bay, San Jose, St. Louis and Washington during the winning streak and he has allowed just four goals during that span. Pavelec has been an effective goaltender at times but he struggles with consistency. He often runs very hot or very cold but he can't seem to find that middle ground.
Mar 22 - 9:37 AM

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 27 shots en route to his fourth win in a row, as the Jets took down the Capitals on Saturday night 3-0.

Pavelec has reclaimed his role as the number-one netminder, at least temporarily. In starting four in a row, Pavelec has given up four goals during that span. He has a 2.46 goals-against average and .914 save percentage. It's tempting to start him, but his resume suggests the downfall could be imminent.
Mar 21 - 9:51 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will get the start against the Capitals Saturday night.

It will be the much-maligned netminder's fourth start in a row. The last time Pavelec started four consecutive games was at the beginning of November. Despite the fact that Pavelec is on a win streak at the moment with three straight wins, we can't recommend him.
Mar 21 - 2:07 PM

Ondrej Pavelec won his third straight game in fine fashion on Thursday night, turning aside 32 St. Louis shots and another two in the shootout to help Winnipeg earn a 2-1 win.

Pavelec improved to 16-14-7 on the year with a .914 save percentage and 2.46 goals against average. The 27-year-old is 3-1 in March with a .955 save percentage and 1.26 goals against average.
Mar 20 - 12:46 AM

Ondrej Pavelec will get the call for Winnipeg on Thursday against St. Louis.

It will mark his third straight start after he won his previous two outings. Pavelec's last appearance against the Blues came in relief on Mar. 10 and it was going well before he allowed a goal from 74 feet away to take the loss.
Mar 19 - 11:57 AM

Ondrej Pavelec recorded his second straight win Tuesday night as he turned aside 38 of 40 shots in a 5-2 win over San Jose.

Pavelec was assigned back-to-back starts for the first time since late November and he has delivered with victories in each of those outings, raising his record to 15-14-7 in the process. We're still in the Michael Hutchinson camp long-term, but the Jets are in a position where they must ride a hot hand if they hope to make the playoffs.
Mar 17 - 11:11 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

While this will be Pavelec's 40th game of the season, it's the first time he's started in back-to-back contests since Nov. 20 and 23. He turned aside 15 of 16 shots in a 2-1 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday.
Mar 17 - 12:27 PM

Ondrej Pavelec gave up one goal on 16 shots in the Jets’ 2-1 win over the Lightning on Saturday night.

A great outing considering he gave up an embarrassing goal against the Blues that decided Tuesday's game. The rangy netminder wasn’t tested too much in this one, though he and the Jets went down first at the beginning of the third period. Pavelec has given up two goals over his past two starts. He has a 2.52 goals-against average and .910 save percentage.
Mar 14 - 10:07 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will get the start Saturday night against the Lightning.

Last we saw Pavelec he let in an absolutely awful goal from beyond center by the Blues' Barret Jackman to cost the Jets at least a point in the standings. He will be looking to redeem himself against Tampa. We wouldn't start him, though.
