This is a must-win for the Jets so there is no way they start Al Montoya. Pavelec was peppered in Tuesday's huge game vs. Washington. He allowed four goals on 40 shots in a loss that pretty much ends their season. He will be in tough tonight against the Habs.
Pavelec will start his 12th straight game tonight.
Pavelec stopped 24 of 25 shots in a huge win for the Jets last night. He will be back in goal again tonight for the Jets biggest game of the season. With a regulation loss they will be eliminated from the playoffs, but with a win they will have a one point lead over the Caps for the Southeast division lead. Pavelec is not the best option tonight but you could do worse.

Pavelec won his last two starts while only allowing one goal in each contest. He has a great chance at making it three in a row as he will see the 29th placed Florida Panthers. He is 2-2-0 with a 3.14 GAA and .890 SV% vs. the Panthers this season.
Pavelec broke out of his slump his last game out holding the Flyers to one goal. Prior to that game, he had let in 15 goals over the previous 4 games - all for losses. Buffalo, at home, presents a good opportunity for Pavelec to build off of his Flyers win.
