Sean Bergenheim scored the go-ahead goal in the second period Friday night as the Florida Panthers recorded a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Kris Versteeg also scored a goal for Florida, while Scott Clemmensen stopped 20 shots. Bryan Little scored for Winnipeg, and Chris Mason made 28 saves. Winnipeg lost for the ninth straight time when playing the second of consecutive games. The Jets have been shut out twice and outscored 36-7 in those. The Jets tied the game 1-1 on Little's goal at 11:29 of the second. Little grabbed a loose puck and fired a wrist shot from the left circle between Clemmensen's pads. But Florida regained the lead about three minutes later. Marcel Goc passed the puck from behind the net to Bergenheim, who was waiting in front of the crease. His wrister got past Mason at 14:27. The Panthers had taken a 1-0 lead on Versteeg's power-play goal in the first period. Versteeg took a pass from Mikael Samuelsson at the left circle, and his slap shot got between Mason's right skate and the post at 15:46, for his team-leading 20th goal of the season. Versteeg now has six goals and two assists in the past three games against Winnipeg. He returned to the lineup after missing Wednesday's game against the Capitals with the flu.
