Once and for all, Ondrej Pavelec wanted to set the record straight.

The Winnipeg Jets goalie is not feeling tired despite a heavy workload and he believes he can play each and every game for the rest of the season.

Pavelec was asked a simple question about whether he was feeling energized after backup Al Montoya played Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but he vented his frustration during a mini-rant.

"I'm going to be honest, I'm tired of answering those questions," said Pavelec, who is 15-14-2 with a 2.75 goals against average and .905 save percentage this season. "You guys ask me every time how I feel when I'm not playing or I'm playing. I don't think it's a big deal that the goalie plays a lot of games. A lot of goalies are doing it. I don't see the reason why the goalie can't do it.
