SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Brad Boyes and Jonathan Huberdeau scored in a shootout, lifting the Florida Panthers over the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Saturday night to snap a three-game losing streak. Boyes' backhander went through the legs of goalie Josh Harding for the winner. Huberdeau beat Harding on the stick side for the first shootout goal. Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu were turned aside by Panthers goalie Tim Thomas in the shootout. Aleksander Barkov scored in regulation for Florida, and Thomas made 31 saves. Jonas Brodin scored a goal for Minnesota, while Harding stopped 21 shots. The Wild lost their third straight and managed two or fewer goals for the seventh time this season. The Panthers tied it 1-all with a power-play goal at 6:49 of the third. Tomas Fleischmann took a pass from Brian Campbell at the top of the right circle, and Fleischmann's slap shot was deflected into the net by Barkov. Minnesota had a 5-on-3 for 1:19 midway through the third period, but the Panthers killed off both penalties. The Wild took a 1-0 lead on Brodin's power-play goal in the second. His slap shot from the point was deflected by Florida's Jesse Winchester and past Thomas at 4:05. It was the 10th power-play goal for the Wild this season. NOTES: Thomas made his second start for the Panthers after missing four games due to a groin injury. He lost 3-2 on Thursday to the Boston Bruins, his former team. ... Panthers C Nick Bjugstad, a 2010 prep Mr. Minnesota hockey winner, faced his hometown team for the first time. ... Minnesota LW Dany Heatley's second-period assist was his second point this season. He has no goals in nine games. ... Wild D Keith Ballard was scratched with a head injury.
