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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
