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.
It seems like I'm kind of making it a little difficult on myself here the last two games.
