The first part of it can sometimes be painful, but Winnipeg Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec is beginning to take on a label that doesn't sound all that terrible -- a good bounce-back netminder.

The perils of the position were in full view Monday night here when Pavelec and the Jets caved in during the third period against the Edmonton Oilers, losing 5-3.

On Thursday, with that in mind, Pavelec just went back to doing what he does, stopping the puck with an even-keeled approach.

He turned away 33 Florida shots and the Jets crept again closer to the Southeast Division lead with a 7-0 victory over the Panthers.
