  • Pavelec saved 44 of 45 shots before allowing two goals in the shootout during Monday's 2-1 loss to Dallas. This was a rare dominant showing from the veteran, as Pavelec entered Monday's contest with a .901 save percentage and 2.99 GAA through 48 games over the past three seasons. Additionally, with Henrik Lundqvist locked into a huge workload, the veteran Czech is unlikely to see many starts moving forward. It all adds up to Pavelec offering limited fantasy upside, and it's likely safe to leave him to the waiver wire in most settings.

  • Pavelec will man the crease in Monday's contest against Dallas, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. The first-year Ranger has had a rough start to life in the Big Apple, having gone 2-4-0 with a 3.45 GAA and .899 save percentage through seven games. That being said, Pavelec's play has improved of late, as he's recorded a 2.93 GAA and .923 save percentage over his past two starts. On Monday, Pavelec will face off with a Stars team that has dropped three straight while averaging 1.67 goals per game.

  • Pavelec made 41 saves in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Penguins. Pavelec faced only four shots in the first period, but still managed to surrender the game's first goal. He was far busier in the middle frame, allowing one goal again despite being peppered with 23 shots. The Penguins managed to tie the game 3-3 early in the third, but Pavelec stonewalled them after New York regained the lead with 8:48 left. Should Henrik Lundqvist (flu) be forced to miss any more time, Pavelec looks ready to fill in effectively.

  • Henrik Lundqvist won't be available against the Penguins due to an illness, so Pavelec has been given the starting nod for Tuesday's match in Pittsburgh, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports. Pavelec will likely have some rust to shake off early on against the Penguins, as he hasn't made a start in net since he allowed five goals on 43 shots in a loss to the Canadiens on Oct. 28. The 30-year-old netminder has struggled in limited action this season, compiling a 1-4-0 record while posting an ugly 3.56 GAA and .889 save percentage in six appearances.
