TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Mark Scheifele tapped home a pass from Blake Wheeler 1:04 into overtime Saturday, handing the Winnipeg Jets a 2-1 victory over Tampa Bay.

The Lightning nearly ended the game seconds earlier when Alex Killorn pulled Jets goalie Al Montoya out of the net but clanged a shot off the post.

Winnipeg then advanced into the Bolts' zone and Wheeler found Scheifele alone at the right side of the net for the game-winner.

Wheeler also scored in regulation for Winnipeg, which completed a six-game road trip with a 4-2-0 mark.

Montoya stopped 28-of-29 shots.

Nate Thompson scored and Anders Lindback made 34 saves for Tampa Bay.
