BUFFALO, N.Y., Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Former Sabres captain Jason Pominville scored the go-ahead goal on a second-period power play Monday, boosting Minnesota over winless Buffalo 2-1.

Pominville, obtained by Minnesota late last season after 10 seasons with the Sabres, worked a give-and-go play with Mikko Koivu as time was ticking down in the period.

After receiving the last in a series of quick passes, the right wing sent a shot off the shoulder of goalie Jhonas Enroth and into the net, breaking a 1-1 tie with his 22nd career winning goal.

Kyle Brodziak also scored as the Wild racked up a third straight win.

Josh Harding turned aside 22-of-23 shots for Minnesota.

Brian Flynn found the net and Enroth finished with 18 saves for Buffalo, which fell to 0-6-1 on the season.
