Recap

Bryan Little scored twice and defenseman Dustin Byfuglien collected a goal and two assists as the Winnipeg Jets once again discovered their scoring touch against the Philadelphia Flyers with a 6-4 home triumph on Saturday.

Captain Andrew Ladd netted a power-play goal and Jim Slater added a shorthanded tally for Winnipeg, which recorded a 9-8 victory over Philadelphia on Oct. 27 in the NHL's highest-scoring game in over 15 years.

The Jets have scored 15 goals in two games against the Flyers this season - and just 43 in their other 18 contests.

Little ignited the Jets after scoring twice early in the first period. After cleaning up a rebound off Byfuglien's slapshot at the 4:45 mark, Little then added his fourth of the season 2:15 later.

After Slater's shorthanded tally gave the Jets a 4-1 lead, Byfuglien netted his team's third power-play goal midway through the second period after his wrist shot caromed off Sergei Bobrovsky and into the net.

Rookie Matt Read's third-period tallies brought the Flyers within one, but Ondrej Pavelec closed the door to improve to 4-1-0 in his career versus Philadelphia.

Scott Hartnell collected a pair of power-play goals and Read has five goals in four games for Philadelphia, which suffered its first regulation loss since losing to Winnipeg last month (6-1-2).
