WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP)

A night after getting pulled in a loss at Toronto, Ilya Bryzgalov was solid for the Flyers in a rare road win.

Bryzgalov made 24 saves and Brayden Schenn, Kimmo Timonen and Tye McGinn scored to give Philadelphia a 3-2 victory Tuesday night against Winnipeg and their second road win of the season.

''It's a very important two points for us,'' said Bryzgalov, who noted they have four more road games ahead in the next few days.

The veteran Russian goalie was benched in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto after giving up four goals on 14 shots.

''All of us bounced back today and played very, very well,'' he said. ''Obviously we played last night and we came late (to Winnipeg) and they were rested and . . . came out full of energy, with a supportive defense, and wanted to probably make the result early in the game.

''But we survived the storm.''

Jakub Voracek had two assists for the Flyers.

Defenseman Braydon Coburn thought the Flyers came out flat.

''Any time you play back-to-back it's a tough situation but it's something that every team in the league has to deal with,'' Coburn said.

Andrew Ladd scored both goals for the Jets), the last in the final seconds. Winnipeg was coming off a 1-0 win in Ottawa on Saturday.

''It's a very important two points for us,'' said Bryzgalov, who noted they have four more road games ahead in the next few days.

The veteran Russian goalie had been pulled from Monday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto after giving up four goals on 14 shots.

Al Montoya recorded his first loss as a starter for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec replaced Montoya in the third after what was reported as a lower-body injury for Montoya.

''Same old 40 minutes that we played well and we did things that we liked and then some inconsistencies in the other parts of our game that cost us,'' Pavelec said.

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.
