THE man responsible for one of the more memorable moments this season had no interest in looking back.
Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec's 50-save performance in Tuesday's night overtime loss was still on the mind of most hanging around the MTS Centre Wednesday morning, and why not? He almost single-handedly won the game for Winnipeg, turning aside waves and waves of Philadelphia pressure until they finally broke through with just seconds left on the clock in regulation time.
A sombre Pavelec wasn't too keen on discussing his play or where he would rank that outing in his personal Top 10 list in front of reporters Wednesday. He talked quietly and carefully, quickly adjusting any spotlight away from himself and onto the group that plays in front of him.
Pavelec's actual worth far outstrips his numbers
