Ladd agreed there was a little desperation in the Jets' dressing room at this point, after playing a team they knew was tired.

"You've got to have the killer instinct to jump on them early and stay on them and not give them any life," Ladd said. "I thought we had a great start but allowed them to creep their way back in the game."

The Flyers took a 2-1 lead in the first, even though they were outshot 9-6 by the Jets.

Montoya didn't have much of a chance when Schenn redirected Voracek's pass right in front of the net on Philadelphia's second shot of the game at 8:07.

Winnipeg tied it up at 14:12, when Blake Wheeler fed Ladd just in front of the Flyers net and he squeezed one past Bryzgalov's short side.

A late cross-checking penalty to defenseman Zach Redmond was costly, with Timonen slamming the puck down a clear path between the faceoff circles that Montoya wasn't fast enough to block.

There was no scoring in the second, although Winnipeg again outshot the Flyers 10-6 for the period. There was also a short scrap between Jets defenseman Mark Stuart and McGinn.

McGinn then redirected Vortacek's pass into Winnipeg's net at the 4:17 mark from just outside the crease.

Ladd scored his final goal at 19:13 after the Jets pulled their goaltender.

The Jets went 0 for 3 on the power play.

It was the first game Winnipeg defenseman Dustin Byfuglien has played since the Jets visited Montreal. He got a massive cheer when his name was announced in the starting lineup.

Notes: The Jets went into the game with the most productive defense in the NHL at 34 points, led by top-scorer Tobias Enstrom with 13 points.
