Ondrej Pavelec G WPG 2 Days
Head coach Paul Maurice has stressed that the Winnipeg Jets' goalie rotation will continue after the NHL's three day holiday break, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Pavelec will continue to split starts with Michael Hutchinson for the time being. However, Pavelec has struggled as of late, losing three of his last four games while giving up at least three goals in each of those losses. Meanwhile, Hutchinson has gone 8-2-2 this season while posting a league-leading 1.67 GAA as well as a league-leading .944 save percentage. If Pavelec continues to struggle, and Hutchinson continues to dominate, Pavelec may find himself on Winnipeg's bench more often than he finds himself starting in net moving forward.

Pavelec surrendered four goals on 23 shots in Sunday's overtime loss to the Flyers.
After a solid outing Tuesday vs. Buffalo, Pavelec returned to his losing ways Sunday. The 27-year-old has now lost three of his past four games, giving up at least three goals in each of those losses. Considering Pavelec's recent struggles, expect Michael Hutchinson and his league-leading .940 save percentage to continue to see the majority of starts going forward.

Pavelec will start in net against the Flyers on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Pavelec is in a rotation with Michael Hutchison in net, and Sunday is his turn to start in net. He is coming off a good performance against the Sabres in which he stopped 27 of the 28 shots he faced, and carries a 2.27 GAA and .916 save percentage into the matchup.

Pavelec denied 27 of 28 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 rout of the Sabres.
Pavelec had been rough over the last two games, giving up seven goals, and has struggled to establish much consistency at any point this year. But this is a positive outing that could lead to Pavelec drawing another start when the Bruins come visiting Friday.

Pavelec will be in the crease Tuesday against the Sabres, 680 CJOB Sports reports.
Coach Paul Maurice has stuck firmly to his pattern of alternating starts between Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson, though he may be leaning toward reconsidering that plan given how Pavelec's last two turns have went. The netminder has yielded seven goals on 51 shots (.862 save %), taking losses to the Ducks and Avalanche in the process. It's no safe bet that he'll get things back on track against the Sabres, who look significantly more imposing than they did just two months earlier.

Pavelec stopped 23 of 26 through regulation and overtime, then allowed goals on both shootout attempts in a loss to Colorado on Thursday.
Not a pretty result on any count for Pavs, who's hit a slump lately, going 2-2-2 over his last seven starts, during which he's posted save marks north of .900 just twice.

Pavelec will start Thursday's game against the Avalanche, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Pavelec will return to the crease after giving way to Michael Hutchinson in Winnipeg's last game Tuesday. Pavelec has played well this season, but Hutchinson has too, so expect the two to continue sharing the goaltending duties for the Jets.
Ondrej Pavelec G WPG 22 Days
Pavelec allowed four goals on 25 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Pavelec was coming off of a pair of wins in which he allowed just three goals combined, but struggled on Sunday as he allowed the game winner less than a minute into the extra period. He's now 9-8-3 and his numbers aren't great with a 2.30 GAA and save percentage of .915, but he should continue to see the majority of the starts.

Pavelec will start in net Sunday against the Ducks, Ken Wiebe of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Pavelec last started Wednesday, stopping 22 of the 24 shots he faced en route to an overtime victory. He now sits at 9-8-2 on the season, and will carry a 2.21 GAA and .919 save percentage into the matchup against the Ducks.

Pavelec claimed his second straight victory Wednesday, stopping 22 of 24 shots before defeating the Oilers in overtime.
The win puts Pavelec back over .500 for the season (9-8-2), as he received just enough support from his mates to come out on top. Pavelec's overall numbers remain better than expected for the season, but with Michael Hutchinson also playing well, he's been forced to surrender more starts than usual lately. Coach Paul Maurice stated a desire to use both of his goalies at least once within every seven or eight days, which could work out to a roughly even split between the starts.
