Sunrise, FL (Sports Network) - Alex Kovalev's power-play tally with under 7 1/2 minutes left in regulation was the game winner as the Florida Panthers used a five-goal third period to snap a five-game slide and best the Winnipeg Jets, 6-3, on Thursday.
Kris Versteeg, Peter Mueller, Jonathan Huberdeau and Tomas Kopecky also scored in the final stanza for the Panthers, who hadn't won since an opening-night decision against Carolina 12 days ago.
Jose Theodore stopped 22-of-25 shots for the win.
Grant Clitsome, Olli Jokinen and Tobias Enstrom posted markers for the Jets, who have lost two in a row following a three-game win streak.
Ondrej Pavelec was beaten five times on 33 shots in the setback.
