PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jonathan Huberdeau and Peter Mueller each had two goals to help the Florida Panthers snap a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

Tomas Kopecky also scored for Florida, which was 0-2-3 since a 3-2 shootout victory in Philadelphia on Feb. 7. Scott Clemmensen, who backs up Jose Theodore, stopped 32 shots to earn his first win since April 7.

Luke Schenn and Jakub Voracek scored Philadelphia's goals in the third period.

The Flyers came out flat one night after a wild 6-5 win at Pittsburgh. It didn't help when they learned before the game that center Matt Read will miss six weeks because he tore rib cage muscles when hit by the Penguins' Chris Kunitz. Read leads Philadelphia with seven goals and is a key contributor on the power-play and penalty-kill units.
