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.
#NHLJets recall Zach Redmond from conditioning assignment with St. John's IceCaps. Redmond earned two assists in two games over the weekend.
Like the Karlsson return, this is nothing short of spectacular. Redmond suffered a life-threatning laceration to his leg in practice earlier this season. He expected to miss the rest of the season because of the incident, but he is already back in the NHL. With Zach Bogosian out with a concussion, the door is open for Redmond to get back in the lineup. We'll have to wait and see if it is him, Derek Meech or Jacob Trouba tonight.
