Ondrej Pavelec will get the start versus the Washington Capitals on Thursday night.

The Jets come in with 70 points in the standings through 59 games. They lead the Wild Card over LA and San Jose by four points, the Kings own an advantage with two games in hand over both clubs. Pavelec meanwhile owns a 13-12-7 record with 85 goals against through 35 games this season. He hasn't beaten the Caps since January of 2013, a span of six starts where Pavelec allowed 22 goals.
Feb 19 - 6:00 PM

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 23 of 26 shots in a 3-1 loss to Nashville on Thursday night.

Ondrej Pavelec will get the start against the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.

The Jets come trailing idle Chicago by four points for third in the Central, and leading Calgary by a trio for the first Wild Card slot. While this may not be a classically crucial game, every point matters. Pavelec owns a 13-11-7 record with 82 goals against through 34 games this season, as well as a 4-5-1 record with a shutout and 22 goals against in 11 career games versus Nashville.

Ondrej Pavelec has benefited this season from an improved defensive system.

"To put up good numbers, you need the team in front of you to play well defensively," he said. "Goalies around the league that put up great numbers, the teams in front of them play great defensively. That's not a secret." He has also seen a decreased workload this year thanks to the superb play of rookie Michael Hutchinson, which has helped as well. Coach Paul Maurice has been using the two of them on a rotation basis for a while. Pavelec had a .901 save percentage and a 3.01 goals-against average last season, but this year he owns a .911 save percentage and a 2.54 GAA.
Feb 10 - 8:05 AM

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 25 shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over Colorado.

The Jets were down 1-0 after the first period, but they came back and scored four goals in the second period. Pavelec's stat line would have looked a lot better had he not allowed two third period goals when the game was in hand. The 27-year-old hadn't won a game since January 18th coming into this one. His record improves to 13-11-7 on the season. His fantasy upside is limited because he will be splitting starts with Michael Hutchinson.
Feb 8 - 8:51 PM

Ondrej Pavelec made 30 saves on 33 shots but it wasn't enough as the Jets fell 3-2 in OT to Vancouver on Tuesday.

Pavelec has pretty much lost his starting job to Michael Hutchinson but put in a solid performance to earn some favor back from coach Paul Maurice. With the Jets losing five in row and Hutchinson finally starting to show some chinks in the armor, it will be interesting to see if Pavelec gets a few more starts. He's 12-11-7 with a 2.52 GAA and .911 save percentage in 33 games played.
Feb 4 - 2:10 AM

Ondrej Pavelec indeed will face the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

Pavelec hasn't been good in his last 11 starts since December as he's 4-3-4 with 34 goals against. On the season, he's 12-11-6 with 76 goals against in 32 games. And lifetime against the Canucks, he's 1-3-1 in five starts with 14 goals against. Any which way you slice it, it's not a good matchup.
Feb 3 - 8:27 PM

Coach Paul Maurice hinted that Ondrej Pavelec will be in goal for the Jets on Tuesday against Vancouver.

Michael Hutchinson has started the last three games, including Monday's 5-2 loss to Calgary. Pavelec entered that game in relief and made four saves on four shots. Maurice also hinted that Hutchinson will be back in the crease for Friday's game versus Chicago.
Feb 3 - 8:23 AM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed four goals on 29 shots Tuesday as the Jets were beaten by Pittsburgh by a score of 5-3.

Pavelec has done nothing of late to bridge the gap between himself and Michael Hutchinson and stands to watch a number of games from the bench in the near future. His record falls to 12-11-6 on the year while his GAA rises to 2.52 and his save percentage drops to .911.
Jan 27 - 9:48 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will face the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

Pavelec comes in with a 12-10-6 record, a 2.47 GAA and a .913 save percentage through 30 appearances this season. Since the beginning of December, a span of 10 starts, he's 4-2-4 with 30 goals against. However, the Jets do lead Calgary for the first Wild Card by seven points, and trail Chicago and St. Louis in the Central by just a pair. Which makes him starting tonight all the more confusing, beware of the Kladno native.
Jan 27 - 5:38 PM

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 28 of 31 shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over Arizona.

Pavelec also stopped all three of Arizona's shooters in the shootout. The 27-year-old has now won back-to-back starts. The Jets are on a four-game winning streak, but they have an interesting goaltending situation on their hands. Michael Hutchinson has arguably been the better of the two goaltenders this season, but he and Pavelec will probably split starts down the stretch. Pavelec is now 12-10-6 with a 2.47 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage.
Jan 18 - 10:22 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will get the start Sunday against the Arizona Coyotes.

If the Jets win and Blackhawks lose in regulation tonight, the Jets will be able to take over third place in the Pacific because they own the tie-breaker. They'll also trail idle St. Louis by just a pair, and idle Nashville for the top slot by four points. In eight career starts against the Coyotes, Pavelec is 5-2-1 with just 16 goals against.
Jan 18 - 5:25 PM

Ondrej Pavelec was masterful in the Jets' goal on Thursday night, making 46 saves on 47 shots to lead the team to a hard-fought 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars.

Pavelec snapped an ugly slump in which he went winless in his past four games and allowed four goals in each loss. The 27-year-old rebounded in a big way on Thursday under heavy attack from the Stars but did not give in. Pavelec improves to 11-10-6 this season with a .913 save percentage and 2.46 goals against average.
Jan 16 - 12:49 AM

Ondrej Pavelec is expected to start for Winnipeg Thursday against Dallas.

He hasn't won his past four outings (0-2-2) and he's allowed four goals in each of those games.
