Jets goalie gives up go-ahead goal from center ice, loses game

How does that go in?

For the most part, Winnipeg Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec has played pretty decently this season. Or at least, he hasn't had many of his signature, mind-numbing moments where you wonder just what the heck he was thinking. That little part of his game has been in hibernation.

It awoke and reared its ugly head on Tuesday. The Jets had tied the game in St. Louis at 4-4 with minutes remaining in the third, but then Blues defenseman Barret Jackman fired a floater in from center ice at Pavelec and the unthinkable happened.

The final horn sounded less than a minute later. The Jets lost, 5-4.
