MONTREAL (AP) - Jesse Winchester and Nick Bjugstad scored in a 2:27 span in the second period, and Scott Clemmensen made 17 saves in the Florida Panthers' 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night.

Alex Galchenyuk scored for Montreal, and Peter Budaj made 23 saves.

Florida extended its winning streak to three games, and Montreal lost for the third time in four games.

Winchester opened the scoring at 4:44 of the second, beating Budaj with a one-timer off the post. Tomas Kopecky started the play, drawing both Montreal defensemen behind the net before feeding Winchester.

Bjugstad scored at 7:11, finishing off a 3-on-2 rush by firing a wrister under Budaj's glove.

Galchenyuk scored at 2:28 of the third, banging home captain Brian Gionta's rebound from inside the crease with Montreal on a power play.
