Montoya could start for Jets in Ottawa

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.

Quote of the Day

Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
