WINNIPEG -- Their goaltending was near the bottom of the league last season, but coach Paul Maurice says the Winnipeg Jets have to play better hockey in front of Ondrej Pavelec before they can assess their starter. "Play a strong enough game in front of him, give him a chance to win every night, and then well make an assessment of our goaltending and where its at," Maurice said as training camp opened Thursday with player physicals. "I have confidence in this man and his abilities to do it." General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff and now Maurice havent wavered in their support of the Czech import, and his teammates agree they havent always given him the help he needs. Pavelec, 27, joined the Atlanta Thrashers in 2007-08 and became their starter in 2009-10. He was the teams most valuable player in 2011-12, the year the Thrashers relocated to Winnipeg and became the Jets, but even then his numbers werent great. They turned abysmal last season. Pavelec let in the most goals of any netminder in the league at 163 and his .901 save percentage was tied with Martin Brodeur at the bottom of the 30 players with 39 games or more. The Jets finished 22nd last season, with a record of 37-35-10. Pavelecs record was 22-26-7. A trimmer and presumably fitter Pavelec went through his physical with his teammates Thursday. No players were made available to reporters. Maurice was the only voice explaining what the team will try to do to get better and he wasnt making any rash promises about playoff hockey come next spring. "Youre going to ask me every day, Hey, are you guys going to make the playoffs this year? I know thats coming and I dont have an answer for you. Were going to have an answer for you somewhere in the early part of April . . ." "I tell you what were going to do. Were going to work our butts off in training camp to get better." That includes Pavelec, he said. "We need Ondrej to be every bit better as every other player . . . The talent is there and weve seen it. We need to put a structure in front of him that he understands. . . He needs to do the work." His backup this season, at least so far, looks like rookie Michael Hutchinson, who came out of the Jets AHL farm team late last season and impressed enough to stick around and displace Al Montoya. Maurice said the most important thing the Jets can do this season is improve defensively. "No Stanley Cup champion ranks in the top-10 of everything but the one area thats consistent is theyre good defensively. And were talking about from a goals against strictly point of view. We have to be a better defensive team." Its something he preached last season and something his predecessor Claude Noel also talked about until he was sacked in January after a five-game losing streak. Maurice promises more than just talk. He says things like ensuring people are where theyre supposed to be on the ice are going to dominate training camp, not scrimmages. "Were just going to do it over and over and over again until we get it right. Last year from day one of my taking over the job to the end of the regular season I believe there were two days when we didnt work on our defensive zone coverage." He also promised things in the three systems theyll be learning that are new to all the players. The Jets hit the practice ice Friday and play their first exhibition game Monday, when the Minnesota Wild visit the MTS Centre in Winnipeg. The team may be looking for better results but makeup-wise it doesnt look a lot different from last season. About the biggest change is the replacement of centre Olli Jokinen with Mathieu Perreault. It looks like a slight upgrade since both had 18 goals and 43 points last season, but Perreault did it in 69 games with the Ducks and is only 26. Jokinen took 82 games and is 35. "Youve got a player thats quite quick . . real good faceoff man," offered Maurice, who said wherever Perreault lands, they want to use his offensive skills. It seems likely hell centre Winnipegs third line, but with whom is anyones guess at this point. "They have to be good defensively . . but we want them to generate some things. . . We are expecting him to work into the power-play units . . . increase our skill level a little bit in terms of how we can move the puck." The big hope for new talent, however, seems to be from within, which shines a spotlight on Jets prospects like the teams No. 1 draft pick this year, 18-year-old Nikolaj Ehlers, or Adam Lowry, a six-foot-five centre who found his footing last season in his rookie year in the AHL.

PETERSBURG, Fla.This week, Martin Tylers column looks at teams on the longest winning runs against Premier League rivals and reveals the side with the most away points on 2015... How to send your questions to MartinTweet @SkyFootball using the hashtag #TylersTeasers Martins starting statsI was at the Liberty Stadium to witness Swanseas third win in a row in the league over Manchester United and their fourth win in their last five against them - all by a scoreline of 2-1.This time they came from behind, just as they did in February when Bafetimbi Gomis also scored the winner. Ki Sung-yueng scored in both league games last year and was in the Sunderland League Cup semi-final side that beat United in 2013/14. They wont have been too pleased to see him when he came on!Swansea join Manchester City as the only club to have won both their home games so far in the Premier League this season. Gomis became only the second player to score in the first four games of a season for Swansea and the first in the top division. The only other was Harry Deacon, who did it in 1923 in the Third Division South. Gomis has scored nine in his last 10 Premier League appearances, having scored two in his first 25 when he had to play second fiddle to Wilfried Bony and didnt always start.In contrast, Wayne Rooney has failed to score in his last 10 in the Premier League and only once in the last 17 months away from home in the Premier League - at Arsenal. He has not scored in his last 15 away games.On a positive note he took his tally of career club goals to 250 with his hat-trick against Club Brugge and is on 48 England goals. He could break Bobby Charltons England record on Saturday and also rack up 300 for club and country.Slow starters Jose Mourinhos Chelsea side have managed just four points from their opening four games this season Chelsea have four points from four games… has a team ever done that and won the title? MarcusMARTIN SAYS: It has been done before, but not since the first-ever Premier League season in 1992/93, when Manchester United mustered the same amount from their opening four games yet still went on to lift the title.That year, United lost their opener at Sheffield United and were beaten again at home to Everton, but recovered with a point against Ipswich then nicked a win at Southampton to begin a run of five straight victories to kick-start their triumphant campaign. It was obviously a 42-game season so they had more games to put it right.Sir Alex Fergusons side also managed to win the title twice after winning just FIVE points from their opening four games, in 2007/08 and 2008/09, and did the same winning just SIX points in 1996/97.No side, however, have claimed the Premier League title after managing six points or fewer from their opening five games of the season, something Chelsea may want to keep in mind when they travel to Everton in their next Premier League match!Serial winners Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Arsenal celebrate beating Newcastle Arsenal have now won eight in a row against Newcastle. Whos on the longest winning run against a fellow Premier League side? GunnerRick1985MARTIN SAYS: Arsenals run of eight wins in a row against Newcastle is the joint-third longest run still going in the Premier League.Manchester City currently lead the way with 11 in a row against Newcastle (January 2009-present), and Manchester United have won their last 10 against Charlton Athletic (September 2002-present) - although the Addicks havent been in the Premier League since their relegation in 2007.Chelsea and Man City also sit alongside Arsenal on a run of eight consecutive wins against Bolton (relegated in 2012) and West Brom respectively.In terms of longest winning runs in Premier League history, Manchester United beat Wigan Athletic 13 times in a row (December 2005 - December 2011), a streak ended by the Latics with a 1-0 win at home in April 2012.The Red Deevils also won 11 games in a row against Aston Villa (2003-08), while Chelsea (Sunderland from 2002-10; West Brom from 2002-11) and Arsenal (Manchester City 1994-04) have also both matched that total.ddddddddddddSeeing red West Hams Mark Noble was sent off against Liverpool on Saturday West Ham have picked up three red cards in their opening four games… is this a record? TimPottsMARTIN SAYS: West Hams record of three reds in their first four Premier League games equals Leicesters indisciplined start to the 2003/04 season.The Foxes avoided a red card in their opening game of that campaign, but then saw Alan Rogers and Riccardo Scimeca sent off in a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea. They finished their next game with 11 men on the pitch, before Les Ferdinand was dismissed as they lost their fourth 3-1 at Aston Villa.This season, the Hammers managed to avoid a red card in their opener, but goalkeeper Adrian, right-back Carl Jenkinson and midfielder Mark Noble (whose red card has been rescinded) have been sent off in their last three (and thats on top of three red cards in the Europa League - which they qualified for through fair play).However, the side that reached three red cards in the shortest time was Arsenal, who saw a red card in each of their first three games of the 2011/12 season: Gervinho in their goalless opener with Newcastle, Emmanuel Frimpong as they lost 2-0 to Liverpool, then Jenkinson when they were thrashed 8-2 at Manchester United.Away-day specialists Joel Ward and Crystal Palace celebrate winning 2-1 at Chelsea Which Premier League side has the most away points in 2015? Melvin (Crystal Palace fan)MARTIN SAYS: No team in the Premier League has picked up more points away from home in 2015 than your club, Crystal Palace.The Eagles have 25 points from 11 games in the calendar year so far, level with Arsenal. The two sides have won eight, drawn one and lost just two, but Palace have scored four more goals (21) than the Gunners (17), with both conceding 10.It must be frustrating for you Melvin that one of the reasons Arsenal are level is because six of those 25 points have come AT Crystal Palace!Chelsea have the next best away record in 2015, with 22 points (seven wins, one draw and three defeats) while Liverpool have mustered 19 points in the same time frame, although they have played 12 games on the road (five wins, four draws and three defeats).Swansea and Manchester United have both managed 18 points, but Garry Monks side have played 12 games (five wins, three draws and four defeats) to Uniteds 11 (five wins, three draws and three defeats).Shot-shy sides Watford striker Troy Deeney and his side have struggled for goals so far Whats the longest a team has gone without a shot on target? Newcastle havent had one in their last two matches. John OHareMARTIN SAYS: Watford have also failed to register a shot on target in their last two Premier League games.No team since the 2006/07 season has gone three consecutive games without a shot on target.Portsmouth (2006), Hull City (2009), Everton (2011) and Sunderland (2012) have all gone two games without managing to get a shot on goal, but Newcastle and Watford could both make it to three.Newcastle travel to West Ham for Monday Night Football live on Sky Sports on September 14 in search of a shot on target, after failing to do so against Manchester United and Arsenal, and I will be commentating on it. I hope for lots of shots on target from both teams! Also See: Premier League video Fixtures Table Live on Sky Get Sky Sports ' ' '
