Another big save by Ondrej Pavelec.
When Bryan Little scored the shootout winner in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, it was more than just a win in the 51st game of a long season. It might have been the most important win of 2012.
For 65 minutes on Tuesday, the Winnipeg Jets went toe-to-toe one more time with the Philadelphia Flyers at the Wells Fargo Centre and for the third time this season the Winnipegs emerged victorious. Chris Thorburn scored his first goal of the year in regulation time; Little fired the only goal of the shootout; Blake Wheeler played 23 minutes, had five shots on goal and was an absolute beast; and Ondrej Pavelec made 27 saves as the Jets beat the Flyers for the third consecutive time.

If it weren't for the fact that Kevin Cheveldayoff was hired in the summer when the team moved North from Atlanta, how many people would know the name of the Winnipeg Jets' rookie general manager? Not many, I presume, and he kept his hand close to his face in the offseason, making very minor moves to spend a year assessing the core of the team he has.

In late February, the Jets get eight straight games with their "Seventh Man."
If the Winnipeg Jets can keep their collective heads about them for the next two weeks, the team's crazy schedule might be enough to get them into the playoffs.
And frankly, "crazy" is the only way to describe what the National Hockey League's schedule makers did to the Jets this season.
