TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Mark Scheifele scored 1:04 into overtime and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Saturday night.

Scheifele scored from the near post off a nifty pass by Blake Wheeler.

Wheeler also had a goal for Winnipeg, which finished 4-2 on its longest road trip of the season. The Jets were coming off a 5-2 loss Thursday night at Florida.

Tampa Bay got a goal from Nate Thompson.

Thompson tied it at 1 on a shot from the slot with just more than a second left in the second period. Martin St. Louis won an offensive zone faceoff before Radko Gudas sent a pass to Thompson, who beat backup goalie Al Montoya. Thompson hadn't scored in his previous 19 games.
