Matthias gets tiebreaking goal in 2nd period as Panthers beat Jets 4-1 for 4th home victory

SUNRISE, Fla. - Tomas Kopecky, Shawn Matthias and Mike Santorelli scored for Florida and Jonathan Huberdeau converted a penalty shot in the Panthers' 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

Jacob Markstrom stopped 21 shots for his first win of the season for Florida, which won at home for just the fourth time this season. The Panthers have been plagued by injuries this season — including Stephen Weiss' season-ending wrist injury.

Kyle Wellwood scored for Winnipeg and Ondrej Pavelec finished with 22 saves while falling to 8-11-1 this season.

After Wellwood tied the score early in the second period, Matthias put the Panthers ahead for goo midway through the period with his fifth game-winning goal of the season.

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
