Jason Pominville prevented what likely would have been a further chorus of boos just before the end of the 2nd period. With 22 seconds remaining, the Buffalo captain converted on a 3-on-1 chance by ripping a shot into the Winnipeg net.
Buffalo rattled off 11 shots on Ondrej Pavelec in the final period, but the Jets' netminder stood tall as his team hung on for the 2-1 victory. The Sabres will visit the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday. Hear the call on WGR 550 and the Buffalo Sabres Radio Network.
