ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — In the right place at the right time, Jason Pominville came through once again for the Minnesota Wild.
With the Wild reeling after surrendering a two-goal lead in the third period, Pominville scored his second goal of the game to lead Minnesota to a 4-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night.
Pominville scored the winner from just outside the left crease, beating goalie Carey Price and notching his team-leading ninth goal with 5:28 left.
“Pucks are finding me and I’m finding ways to put them in,” Pominville said. “But I think it’s just kind of finally getting rewarded for all the work we put in. I think as a line we went through a little bit of a tough stretch and weren’t able to generate much in the goal column and now we’re starting to chip in, in that way.”
