Mike Hoffman and Keith Yandle scored in the second period with the Panthers enjoying the man advantage. Evgenii Dadonov scored on the power play in the first.

HELSINKI — Penalties killed the Winnipeg Jets on Friday and the sins of fourth-line forward Brendan Lemieux were a major cause.

The Florida Panthers registered three power-play goals to defeat the Winnipeg Jets 4-2 in the second game of the 2018 NHL Global Series in Helsinki.

Mike Hoffman and Keith Yandle scored in the second period with the Panthers enjoying the man advantage. Evgenii Dadonov scored on the power play in the first.

Lemieux was in the box for a careless high-sticking minor on Troy Brouwer when Hoffman beat goalie Connor Hellebuyck.

Later, he was assessed a match penalty for an illegal hit to the head when he recklessly blindsided Vincent Trocheck and was kicked out of the game. The match penalty comes with an indefinite suspension pending a review by the league’s department of player safety.

Yandle’s long shot from the point got through traffic and found the back of the net with just 26 seconds left in the frame.

Patrik Laine and Nikolaj Ehlers scored in the first period for Winnipeg. Dadonov replied for Florida with Mark Scheifele serving a slashing minor on Jonathan Huberdeau.

Frank Vatrano scored in the third period on a hard drive past Hellebuyck after a terrific drop pass from Huberdeau.

Laine had a hat-trick Thursday as Winnipeg doubled up on Florida 4-2 in the series opener.

In Game 2, he wired a shot to the top corner past Florida goalie Roberto Luongo to give Winnipeg a 2-1 lead.

Laine now leads the team with seven goals, with six coming on the power play.

Ehlers’ highlight-real goal opened the scoring at Hartwall Arena. He picked up a breakaway pass that was behind him from Blake Wheeler, spun with the puck and stayed on side, fired at Luongo and then tucked in his own rebound for a 1-0 Jets lead.

Wheeler also set up Laine’s goal, and finished the two-game set with five assists.

Luongo was a surprise starter for the Panthers after coming off the injured-reserve list Thursday after recovering from a knee injury suffered in the season opener.

Luongo finished with 32 saves, while Hellebuyck made 22 stops.

The Jets spend the night here and then head home Saturday. The club will enjoy a few days off before beginning preparations for a four-game home stand beginning Friday against the Colorado Avalanche.
