  • Pavelec playing best hockey of his career
    Jets' head coach Paul Maurice believes that Ondrej Pavelec is playing the best hockey of his career.

    Advice: "He’s fresh and ready and playing the best hockey I’ve seen him play." said Maurice. It's hard to argue with that assessment. Pavelec has won six games in a row against difficult competition (Montreal, Edmonton, Washington, St. Louis, San Jose and Tampa Bay). The 27-year-old didn't allow more than two goals in any of those six wins. Pavelec has been very streaky in his career so there's reason to believe that he won't be able to keep this up. If the Jets get into the playoffs and Pavelec can keep this run going a little longer, they will be a tough opponent for any team in a seven game series.
    Today, 6:50 am
  • Martin Jones plays final 2 periods Saturday
    Martin Jones saw his first action in almost a month as coach Darryl Sutter put him between the pipes for the final two periods Saturday.

    Advice: Sutter pulled Jonathan Quick after the first in which the Kings were down 2-0 to the Wild. Jones faced only 10 shots and gave up one goal in a 4-1 loss. He has not started since February 27 and with the Kings in a huge battle for the final playoff spot in the West, do not expect to see him in goal in the regular season, barring an injury or the Kings clinching a spot in the post-season.
    Today, 6:02 am
  • Jonas Hiller to start on Sunday against Preds
    Jonas Hiller will get the start between the pipes for Calgary on Sunday.

    Advice: Hiller replaced Karri Ramo on Friday and now Bob Hartley will give him the start against the Predators. Hiller is 21-18-4 this season with a 2.44 GAA and a .914 save percentage. The Flames are in ninth place in the West so this is a very important game.
    Today, 4:49 am
  • Kari Lehtonen stops 32 of 35 in Stars' OT win
    Kari Lehtonen gave up three goals on 35 shots in the Stars’ 4-3 overtime win against the Canucks on Saturday night.

    Advice: Dallas looked like the sure winners until the Canucks tied the game in regulation on the power play with 1:32 remaining. Lehtonen gave up a goal in each period. He has a 2.84 goals-against average and .907 save percentage.
    Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Eddie Lack's 36 saves not enough in OT loss
    Eddie Lack set aside 36 shots in the Canucks’ 4-3 overtime loss against Dallas on Saturday night.

    Advice: The Canucks only led one time in this game, after Chris Higgins’ second-period power play goal put them ahead 2-1. Lack has generally been pretty solid since taking over the number-one job when Ryan Miller went down with an injury. He has a 2.48 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.
    Yesterday, 9:59 pm

    Yesterday, 8:51 pm
  • Quick gives up two, lasts one period in loss
    Jonathan Quick lasted one period in the Kings’ 4-1 loss to Minnesota on Saturday night.

    Advice: Quick gave up two goals on nine shots. He had actually been rolling with a 3-1-0 record during a spurt in which he gave up a total of seven goals. Quick has a 2.28 goals-against average and .916 save percentage. Martin Jones stopped nine of 10 shots he faced in relief.
    Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Brian Elliott roughed up again in 4-2 loss
    Brian Elliott had a lousy night in net, giving up three goals in the 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets on Saturday.

    Advice: He faced only 16 shots. Elliott has allowed seven goals over his past two games and he’s been very hot and cold lately. It would not be surprising to see Jake Allen get the start Monday at the Canucks. Allen has a 2.18 goals-against average and .920 save percentage this season.
    Yesterday, 7:44 pm
  • Thomas Greiss gains ninth victory of 2014-15

    Advice: Greiss is 9-5-3 with a .913 save percentage and 2.51 GAA this season. He hasn't received the sort of reps to really prove himself in 2014-15 but should be able to land another backup gig this summer.
    Yesterday, 2:03 pm
  • Steve Mason loses beyond regulation again
    The Philadelphia Flyers keep leaving points on the table as they dropped a 3-2 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: Steve Mason's record says it all: 15-17-11 despite a sparkling .927 save percentage. Mason ranks among the biggest reasons to feel more optimistic about Philly's future, especially since he's only 26.
