BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Jason Pominville scored plenty of goals at First Niagara Center, but tonight was his first as a member of the visiting team. That goal ended up being the game-winner, leading Minnesota past the Sabres 2-1.
Minnesota took an early 1-0 lead on Kyle Brodziak's first-period goal. That score stood until Brian Flynn's second-effort tally tied the game at 1-1 in the second.
With just nine seconds remaining in the second period, Pominville buried the game-winner, after a sequence of precision passes by the Wild.
