Ondrej Pavelec allowed four goals on 23 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia.

The Jets went into the third period with a 3-1 lead over the Flyers, but they couldn't hold on for the win. Pavelec has not lost a game in regulation since November 23rd (3-0-3). It's hard to trust either of Winnipeg's goaltenders because it looks like both Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson will continue to share time in goal. Pavelec's record falls to 10-8-5 on the season.

Dustin Byfuglien scored a goal in Winnipeg's 4-3 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Byfuglien's first period goal gave the Jets a 2-1 lead in the game. Winnipeg had a 3-1 lead heading into the third, but they were unable to hold on for the win. The 29-year-old has eight goals and 18 points in 34 games this season, including 10 points in his last 10 games. Matt Halischuk and Mathieu Perreault also scored for the Jets.

TJ Galiardi and Julien Brouillette will be healthy scratches Sunday night against the Flyers.

Galiardi has sat 15 of the last 17 games, and Brouillette has yet to appear in a game this season.
Dec 21 - 8:45 PM

Ondrej Pavelec will start Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The 27-year-old is 10-8-4 this season with a 2.27 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage. The goalie rotation continues in Winnipeg.

Dustin Byfuglien took part in Winnipeg's practice on Saturday.

Byfuglien left the Jets' last game on Friday night late in the third period after taking a high stick "to the chops". The injury shouldn't force him to miss any time.

Winnipeg Jets' head coach Paul Maurice said he expects Tobias Enstrom and Zach Bogosian to return some time in January.

Bogosian has been out with a lower body injury since December 5th, while Tobias Enstrom has also been out with a lower body injury since November 25th. The Jets' defense is really banged up. They're also missing Jacob Trouba and Mark Stuart.

Paul Maurice says he doesn't have a specific plan for his goaltenders going forward.

Both Michael Hutchinson and Ondrej Pavelec have played well this season. "No. I have no idea," said Paul Maurice. "So the reason is that it wasn't a plan to do it. We talked early about shortening the duration that Mike was out and that his play was so good that he has to go. Each goalie now deserves to go back in the net after their performance. And now that it's gone for more than just a couple of games of rotation, one off night doesn't take him out of that rotation. So they're playing well and I'm really concentrating on not over-thinking it."

Look for Winnipeg to continue it's alternating goalie rotation.

That means that Ondrej Pavelec will get the start Sunday night against the Flyers. Michael Hutchinson has been outstanding as Pavelec's partner in the Jets' net but will get the night off after playing in Winnipeg's last game. As both Pavelec and Hutchinson are very capable NHL goalies we expect the job share to continue well into the new year before coach Paul Maurice settles on a single netminder.

Mathieu Perreault was credited with the game-winner in Winnipeg's 2-1 win over Boston on Friday.

Evander Kane and Perreault provided the goal scoring while Michael Hutchinson did the rest of the work for the Jets in this contest. For Perreault it was his fifth of the year. Dustin Byfuglien added an assist and was named the game's number one star.
Dec 20 - 1:27 AM

Michael Hutchinson stopped 31-of-32 shots in Winnipeg's 2-1 win over Boston on Friday night.

Anyone who started Hutchinson tonight was rewarded with a strong effort from the rookie netminder. Through 12 appearances, Hutchinson is first in the NHL with a 1.73 goals against average and first in save percentage at .940. He passed Pekka Rinne in both categories with the start. While he has 15 less appearances, it's still an impressive line. Ondrej Pavelec isn't exactly a world beater so you have to think the Jets will ride him into a few mores starts.
Dec 20 - 1:18 AM

Jay Harrison will make his Jets debut on Friday against the Bruins.

Harrison will line up on their second unit to the left of Grant Clitsome. The veteran defender tallied four points, 35 blocks and hits, along with 48 PIMs in 20 games while in Carolina this season.
Dec 19 - 7:47 PM

Michael Hutchinson will be between the pipes when the Jets welcome the Bruins Friday night.

Through 11 games and eight starts, Hutchinson has allowed only 17 goals on 268 shots. That's good for a .937 save percentage and 1.81 GAA. Yes that's unsustainable, but Boston has scored just 81 goals through 32 games. Good for 20th in the NHL. You can ride it out for another start.

Winnipeg has acquired Jay Harrison from Carolina in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

The selection originally belonged to the Ottawa Senators. In 20 games with the Hurricanes, Harrison has four points and 42 penalty minutes. Winnipeg's defense corps has been decimated with injury, so Harrison should be able to step directly into the lineup.
Dec 18 - 4:11 PM

Jacob Trouba (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve.

He isn't expected to return until February. Trouba missed Tuesday's game against Buffalo because of an upper-body injury.
Dec 18 - 4:07 PM

Zach Bogosian (lower body) isn't expected to resume skating until mid-January.

He has been sidelined since Dec. 3 due to a lower-body ailment.
