Pavelec makes 39 saves and Jets slip past Predators 3-1

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Olli Jokinen, Andrew Ladd and Devin Setoguchi scored and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 39 shots and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Nashville Predators 3-1 Saturday.

The Jets, ranked sixth in the NHL in penalty kills coming into the game, didn't allow a goal on six Nashville power plays.

One of the Predators' strengths has been converting man-advantage chances. Entering the game, they were fifth in the league, but Pavelec stopped Nashville on each power play.

Simon Moser scored his first goal of the season for Nashville.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
