WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Jaromir Jagr
scored late in overtime Tuesday, overcoming a 50-save effort by Winnipeg's Ondrej Pavelec
in the Philadelphia Flyers' 5-4 defeat of the Jets.
Jagr scored with 43.6 seconds left in the extra frame, allowing the Flyers to avoid a season's sweep at the hands of Winnipeg.
Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Scott Hartnell each scored and added an assist as Philadelphia fired off a season-high 55 shots.
Ilya Bryzgalov collected the win with 22 saves.
The Jets' three-game winning streak was snapped despite a pair of Andrew Ladd goals.
Pavelec logged the second 50-save game in his career. He also pulled off the feat in a 3-1 win over Ottawa in October 2009.
