DETROIT (AP) — Jonathan Huberdeau’s goal early in the third period broke a tie and the Florida Panthers beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 on Saturday night.

Jimmy Hayes also scored for Florida. Shawn Matthias had two assists and Tim Thomas stopped 22 shots.

Daniel Cleary scored for Detroit, which is only 5-6-6 at home. Backup goalie Jonas Gustavsson, making his second consecutive start, made 35 saves. It was Gustavsson’s first regulation loss of the season (8-1-1).

Huberdeau gave Florida the lead at 3:29 of the third period. Left wide open in front of Gustavsson, Huberdeau put in a backhand shot after making a move for his seventh goal.
