OTTAWA – Friday, Winnipeg Jets coach Claude Noel said Ondrej Pavelec was battling flu-like symptoms but wouldn’t confirm Al Montoya as the starting goaltender. If Pavelec is still ill, look for Montoya to make his third start of the season Saturday against the Ottawa Senators. The Jets' backup goaltender sports a 4.33 goals-against average and .806 save percentage.
Here are the projected lineups for the Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Senators on Saturday afternoon. Due to the 2 p.m. start, neither team held practices on Saturday.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
