Florida snaps road skid in win at Winnipeg

Mikael Samuelsson's goal in the seventh round 3 decision over the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre.

The teams traded goals in the second and fourth rounds of the shootout. Then, after Winnipeg's Alexander Burmistrov had his attempt poke checked away by Scott Clemmensen, Samuelsson raced down the center of the ice and lifted a wrister over the left shoulder of Ondrej Pavelec for the game-deciding goal.

The win snapped an eight-game road losing streak for Florida.

Kris Versteeg had two goals and an assist, while Mike Santorelli also scored in regulation as the Panthers won for the first time as the guests since a 2-0 win in Boston on December 8.

Clemmensen made 41 saves in the win.

Nik Antropov scored twice and Burmistrov added the other Jets goal in Winnipeg's seventh loss in 10 games. Pavelec stopped 20-of-23 shots.
