Peoria captured its eighth consecutive win – the second-longest winning streak in the AHL this season – and improved to 5-0-0-0 on a season-high seven-game road swing.
The Rivermen took an early 1-0 lead when Nikolay Lemtyugov scored at 5:00 of the opening period, marking his 12th goal of the season and third in his last two games.
But Peoria center Julian Talbot tallied the equalizer on the power play at 10:22 of the second, setting the stage for Woywitka’s eventual game-winner, which came at 18:00.
Manitoba’s five-game home winning streak came to an end, and the Moose dropped their fifth straight contest overall after going 0-4-0-0 on a trip to Texas this past week.
The Rivermen and Moose will tangle at the MTS Centre again on Friday evening.
