04/18/2013 23:48 Jets top Hurricanes in OT, stay close to playoff line
Dustin Byfuglien scored 1:23 into overtime and the Winnipeg Jets continued their hunt for a playoff berth with their season-high fifth straight win, 4-3 victory against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night.
Among the league's top-25 goaltenders with respect to minutes played 2011-2012, Ondrej Pavelec's save percentage, .906, and goals-against average of 2.91 left a little to be desired. He posted a 29-28-9 record on a team that struggled defensively at times. Though the Jets inked the Czech netminder to a five year deal worth $19.5 million in June, do not expect Winnipeg's commitment to his usage moving forward to translate into stellar numbers in this coming season. Remember his name after most of the league's starting goaltenders have been selected. (Updated 8/14/12)
