SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) – Jaromir Jagr scored two goals, including the game-winner in the third period, and Al Montoya made 38 saves as the streaking Florida Panthers beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Sunday.

The victory was the ninth in a row for Florida and seventh straight at home, both franchise records. The nine-game winning streak ties Montreal, Washington and the New York Rangers for the longest in the NHL this season.

Dmitry Kulikov had two assists for the Panthers (23-12-4). Jonathan Huberdeau and Brandon Pirri each added an assist.

Jason Zucker scored for Minnesota (20-11-7), assisted by Mikko Koivu and Ryan Suter. Devan Dubnyk made 26 saves.
