MONTREAL, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Scott Clemmensen stopped 17 shots and came up big during a late two-man advantage for Montreal Sunday in Florida's 2-1 win over the Canadiens.

But Clemmensen made six straight stops to preserve the lead and secure the Panthers' first three-game winning streak this season.

Jesse Winchester and Nick Bjugstad each registered a second-period goal as Florida improved to 5-1-0 in its last six contests.

Alex Galchenyuk scored Peter Budaj made 23 saves for the Canadiens, who lost for the third time in four games.
