The Thrashers won 2-0. The shots were 25 for the Thrashers and 40 for the Red Wings. The Red Wings sure gave Pavelec a tough run for his second shutout of the season. This is the first time this season that the Red Wings have been shutout, and it was in their own arena.
“It was my first game in Detroit and I was a little nervous playing against these guys,’’ Pavelec said. “They had a lot of shots right away. That got me into the game right away.’’ This has been a great season for Pavelec so far, he has a 0.923 SV% and 2.76 GAA. I hope he can keep up this kind of play.
