Video: Pominville scores game-winner in return to Buffalo

It wasn’t exactly a bombastic homecoming for Jason Pominville on Monday – the lights were out in more way than one in Buffalo – but he still left a winner.

His Minnesota Wild squeezed out the Sabres as his second-period power-play goal ended up being the game-winner:

Chances were low tonight, as the Sabres took three more shots on goal (23-20) than the Wild – the first time Minnesota’s lost that battle this season, according to NBC SN’s Liam McHugh – which obviously isn’t much of a victory for Buffalo.

The Wild are now on a three-game winning streak while the Sabres remain without a win (0-6-1) in seven disheartening games.
