I thought he looked pretty good, all things considered. Two of the goals really weren't his fault, Exelby fell into him on one, and on the third the puck took a wicked deflection off one of our guys sticks and went straight top shelf. He ended up with 30 saves I beleive and with the shooting gallery we were hosting in the 2nd half of the first period and the majority of the 2nd, I'm surprised he didn't let more in.

He really needs to improve his puck handling though, he almost gave up a goal going back to play the puck and throwing it right to St. Louis who took an extra stride to get a better shot just before he slid into his way at the last second. A few other times he had a chance to get the puck farther out and either played it right to a Bolt's forward or impeded a Thrasher's defensemen.

To be frank, Kari isn't exactly a good puck handler either.

Just to add:

"Oh, it's unbelievable, he played great," Kovalchuk said. "The first two [goals] they got a couple lucky bounces. They had a couple great chances, and it was just amazing. His glove is unbelievable. I tried to beat him in practice, and it's really tough."- Kovalchuk on Pavalec (via the AJC Blog)

High praize from a three time 40 goal+ scorer. Gotta love, how Kovy is trying to help Pavelec to build some confidence. Something that captains usually does.

i was very impressed with him. he played much better than the 4 GAA would indicate.

if it was not for Pavs then ATL would have lost that game.

i am no Hedberg basher, but i would prefer to se Pavs get thelions share of the starts.

Aren't we happy that our "incompetant GM" draft this little Kid when Lehtonen have been tag franchise goalie back then?

Don't get me wrong, I still have high hope for Lehtonen but it is nice to see that we have a back up plan.

I believe that it would really help Pavelec, in the same way that Kari's 4 games (where he went 4-0, with one shutout) during the 2003-2004 season helped him.

Pavelec was drafted with one of the many picks we gained by trading down to take Bourret a couple of years ago. I think Grant Lewis was another.

He did not get much press in the juniors thanks to Bernier and Price, but he was a great pick by DW.

It was Chad Denny. Grant Lewis was taken a year or two earlier.
