The Winnipeg Jets dropped a 5-3 decision to the Florida Panthers Tuesday night in front of 250 fans at Canada Life Centre.
It was the Jets first home game since a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues back on December 19th.
COVID-19 postponements forced the hockey team to spend almost the entire month of January on the road.
Winnipeg had three wins, three losses, an overtime loss and a shootout loss in eight road games.
Mason Marchment had two goals and an assist while Sergei Bobrovsky made 32 saves for the Eastern Conference leading Panthers.
Paul Stastny, Pierre-Luc Dubois and Kyle Connor with his team leading 23rd of the season, did the goal scoring for the Jets who have lost five in a row.
Cole Perfetti chipped in with a pair of assists.
Winnipeg's Connor Hellebuyck made 27 saves.
The Jets placed defenseman Josh Morrissey into COVID-19 protocol prior to the game.
Winnipeg (17-15-7) will host the Vancouver Canucks Thursday and then face the Blues in St. Louis on Saturday afternoon.
