NHL Game Summary - Winnipeg at Florida



(Thursday, December 5th)

Final Score: Florida 5, Winnipeg 2

Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Dylan Olsen, Erik Gudbranson and Tomas Fleischmann each had a goal and an assist in the Florida Panthers' 5-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.

Nick Bjugstad and Jimmy Hayes also lit the lamp for the Panthers, who went 2-3-0 on a five-game homestand.

Tim Thomas stopped 29-of-31 shots. One of his 11 saves in the first period was the 11,000th of his NHL career.

Andrew Ladd and Olli Jokinen scored for the Jets, who fell to 3-2-0 on a six- game road trip. Ondrej Pavelec turned aside 21-of-26 shots.

"The game wasn't very good," Jets coach Claude Noel said. "It wasn't really the score; obviously, the score is the area, but for me it was the way we played. We didn't have very many good players, we didn't play very intelligent. For as good as we were in New York, we played way different tonight. We had a hard time getting guys engaged in the game."

Ladd jammed home a rebound at the 5:27 mark of the first period.

Gudbranson put Florida on the board with 5:58 remaining when his slap shot from the top of the right circle got past Pavelec.

Olsen's first NHL goal came 3:31 into the middle stanza. Scottie Upshall charged down the right win before sliding a pass to Olsen, who fired a wrist shot from the slot.

"It's awesome. It's your first NHL goal," Olsen said. "It was obviously exciting, but it's even better to get the win and get off that three-game losing streak. That's what we're excited about, and we've got to keep rolling from here."

Fleischmann made it a 3-1 contest at 17:59 of the second when he put home the rebound of Mike Weaver's shot from the right point.

Bjugstad's wraparound made it a three-goal game at the 5:37 mark of the third frame.

Jokinen cut the gap to 4-2 at 12:45 when he scored off Devin Setoguchi's pass from behind the net.

Hayes scored on a breakaway with 2:44 left to account for the final margin.
