Pavelec is slated to start Sunday's game against the Coyotes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Pavelec delivered a spectacular outing Thursday in Dallas, turning away 46 shots to come away with a 2-1 victory.
Pavelec justified his place in the lineup and made his case for more starts all at once, stopping six Jamie Benn shots and another five each from Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza. Despite having given up four goals in four consecutive games -- all losses -- Pavelec got the call for the third time in the last five games over Michael Hutchinson, who's outplayed him handily this year.

Pavelec was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is thus on track to receive the start Thursday against the Stars, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
With Michael Hutchinson playing well, it's quite surprising that coach Paul Maurice continues to give Pavelec semi-regular starts. Pavelec has surrendered exactly four goals in each of his last four outings, losing all of those games. If that trend continues Thursday, the goalie job could finally be Hutchinson's for good.

Pavelec stopped 39 of 43 shots in Sunday's shootout loss to the Ducks.
A good outing from Pavelec, who helped the Jets earn a point against one of the best teams in the Western Conference. The 27-year-old has now lost four straight games, giving up four goals in each of those outings. With Michael Hutchinson emerging as the starter, Pavelec has taken a backseat, as his two wins in his past eight appearances just aren't good enough. With a respectable 10-10-6 record on the season, to go with a .909 save percentage and 2.52 GAA, Pavelec still remains a decent fantasy option, but it's Hutchinson's team now.

Pavelec will start Sunday's game against the Ducks, TSN 1290's Rick Ralph reports.
A ceremony for Teemu Selanne delayed the goalie announcements and start of the game, but Pavelec will indeed make his 27th start of the season. Michael Hutchinson has been getting most of the playing time recently, but the Jets are playing the second game of a back-to-back. Hutchinson will likely return to the net for Tuesday's game against the Panthers.

Pavelec allowed four goals for the third consecutive game -- all losses -- Thursday against the Coyotes.
This was Pavelec's first start since the new year, as Michael Hutchinson's taken over No. 1 duties for Winnipeg, and this outing doesn't make any kind of case for the Czech netminder to win his old job back.

Pavelec will start between the pipes against the Coyotes on Thursday, Sara Orlesky of TSN reports.
Pavelec surrendered four goals on 32 shots in his outing last Wednesday against the Islanders, and his next start won't come until over a week later. He appears to be falling behind Michael Hutchinson for the top goalie spot with the club, but will look to make the decision tougher with a strong outing against the Coyotes on Thursday.

Pavelec allowed four goals on 32 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Islanders.
It was Pavelec's second straight game in which he allowed four goals, and if his play doesn't improve in a hurry, he likely won't be splitting starts with Michael Hutchinson much longer. Hutchinson has been excellent this year, and could be the team's clear starter soon.

Pavelec will be in the crease Wednesday against the Islanders, Jeff Hamilton of CBC.ca reports.
After coach Paul Maurice broke his goalie rotation out of the Christmas break by giving Michael Hutchinson three starts in a row, it looks like he's now leaning toward returning to the alternate-start pattern with his two netminders. As a result, Pavelec will man the net Wednesday, with a big opportunity ahead of him to reclaim control of the No. 1 spot on the depth chart. Hutchinson has looked more human with in allowing three goals in each of his last two performances, creating an opening for Pavelec to earn more looks if he can keep a respectable Isles attack at bay.
